What does it mean when bladder cancer is invasive?

When a tumor forms inside the bladder, it is a carcinoma in situ. This means it has not spread anywhere yet. However, sometimes cancers become invasive, meaning they begin to penetrate the healthy tissues surrounding them. When a cancer becomes invasive, it becomes more difficult to manage.

About 25% of all new bladder cancer patients are first diagnosed with muscle-invasive cancers. Of those who don’t initially present with an invasive disease, 10-15% will go on to develop one.

While not all invasive cancers are lethal, they often require difficult surgery and hospitalization.
