What is Bladder Cancer?

Cancer is a classification of illnesses distinguishable by uncontrolled cell division. While all cancers are defined in this way, there are over 100 types of cancer. If this kind of uncontrolled growth originates in the bladder, the resulting cancer is called bladder cancer, even if it invades or spreads to other regions of the body. It is imperative for doctors to know the specific type of cancer they are dealing with, because all cancers behave differently and respond to different treatments.

If you took the Type-2 diabetes medication Actos, you may be at an increased risk for developing bladder cancer. If you believe that your bladder cancer is connected to Actos use, the Actos attorneys of Williams Kherkher can help you seek financial compensation to cover your medical costs and other related expenses. Contact us at 800-641-9810 to learn more about your legal options.

Invasive Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is a particularly dangerous form of cancer because of how easily it can invade nearby tissues and metastasize to faraway regions of the body. Invasive bladder cancer is likely to find its way to the prostate in men and the uterus in women, and it can severely damage the tissues of these important organs.

Bladder cancer is also capable of metastasizing through blood vessels and lymph vessels to other areas of the body. Cancerous cells can split off from the original tumor and spread to the:

  • Lungs
  • Liver
  • Lymph Nodes
  • Bones

Without diagnosis and treatment, the cancer can continue its growth in these new locations and begin invading new organs.
