Recently, the use of Actos, type 2 diabetes medication, has been linked to the development of bladder cancer if taken for over a year. What is not known, is that there are three primary types of bladder cancer that a person could have and its important to know the difference so that you know the symptoms.
Each type of bladder cancer is named for the cell that become cancerous. First, there is urothelial carcinomas, which begin the tissue lining, the urinary tract, or others areas near the bladder. This type of bladder cancer is about 90 percent of all bladder cancer cases.
The next type is cancer that affects the squamous cells, which are cells that gather in the bladder. These account for only 4 percent of all of the cases. The last type, accounts for only 2 percent of cases, is called adenocarcinoma and affects the glandular cells. Bladder cancer can be invasive or non-invasive, but either way, it can spread and be very dangerous.
