Types of Bladder Tumors
Bladder cancer is a serious illness in which the cells in a person’s bladder become mutated and begin growing beyond control. This uncontrolled growth can have many serious complications, especially when the mutated cells begin taking the place of normal tissue. There are multiple types of bladder cancer, some more dangerous than others. The Type 2 diabetes drug Actos has been shown to drastically increase a person’s risk of developing bladder cancer.

Bladder cancer tumors come in several different kinds. Papillary tumors take on the shape of stalks with bulbs on their tips. These tumors are most often benign, but as many as 15% of them can be invasive. Because they grow into the bladder’s cavity, they are relatively easy to detect during a cystoscopy and can be removed during the procedure.
Sessile tumors grow flatly against the bladder wall. They are much more likely to be malignant than papillary tumors. Fortunately, sessile tumors are not nearly as common as papillary tumors. Malignant bladder cancer is one of the most expensive illnesses to treat due to its high risk of recurrence that necessitates close medical surveillance for years, even after successful treatment.
