How Does the Bladder Work?
The bladder is an important organ to have working at a functional level because it is charged with ensuring that your liquid waste has a place to accumulate until it is convenient for you to get rid of it. People who lose their bladders or who have severe bladder problems often have to use catheters and carry bags in which to store their urine.
The Type-2 diabetes drug Actos has been shown to increase a person’s chances of developing bladder cancer.

About the Bladder
The human bladder is a hollow, elastic organ that stores urine collected from the kidneys. Typical bladders can hold between 300-350ml of urine. People begin feeling the urge to use the restroom when their bladder is about a quarter full. At this point it is easy to ignore the urge, but as the bladder becomes increasingly full, it becomes more and more difficult to ignore.
When the bladder reaches full capacity, the urge to urinate becomes impossible to hold, and the once voluntary sphincter that holds urine in becomes involuntary. For individuals who have suffered serious bladder conditions, however, this normal functioning can be greatly disrupted, and use of the bladder may even become impossible.
One of the many symptoms of bladder cancer is an increase in the frequency of urination. If you took Actos and have since been diagnosed with bladder cancer, the experienced attorneys at Williams Kherkher would like to help you file an Actos lawsuit.
