Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is any of several types of cancer arising from the tissues of the urinary bladder. It is caused when epithelial cells that line the bladder become malignant. In severe cases, it can spread to distant parts of the body, including bones, lungs, or liver.

Smoking is thought to cause about half of all bladder cancers. (This includes any type of smoking: cigarettes, cigars, or pipes).
