The cancer inside the Urinary Bladder is known as the Bladder Cancer. It is a very common kind of cancer but is diagnosed early and therefore highly treatable. This is more common in men than in women. It is mostly found on older people as compared to younger adults.
Symptoms of Bladder Cancer
Urine in Blood
Causes of Bladder Cancer
Cause of Bladder Cancer include
Chronic irritation of the lining of the bladder
Bladder Cancer can be diagnosed through Urine Test, Imaging tests like CT Scan, MRI, Cystoscopy, Bladder Biopsy. Once the cancer is established then the staging needs to be done which means finding out whether the cancer is restricted to the bladder or spread to other body organs. For this PET CT is one of the best test which scans the whole body
Surgery - Surgical removal of the tumour inside the bladder or complete removal of the bladder is considered as the best treatment for bladder cancer. TURBT - Trasurethrel Resection of Bladder Tumour is a surgery which is done when the tumour is sitting on the inner lining of the bladder and has not invaded the muscle. Partial Cystectomy or Radical Cystectomy is done for complete removal of the bladder and other organs like Prostate and Seminal Vesicles in men and Uterus, Ovaries and part of Vagina in women. After removal of the bladder the surgeon has to create a new bladder for the urine to the passed from the body.
The cost of Prostate Cancer Treatment in India through surgery ranges from USD 4000 - 6000 at the best of the hospitals. The first step is to correctly diagnose the stage of prostate cancer. The cost of investigations would be approximately USD 800-1200. Once we know the stage of the cancer then the treatment is planned. If surgery is chosen as the first line of treatment then we have the option of doing TURBT, Partial Cystectomy or Radical Cystectomy. The maximum hospital stay in case of radical cystectomy surgery would be 3-5 days while the stay is lesser when the surgery is done using Laser Technolgy. The patient has to stay in India for 2-3 weeks for this kind of surgery.
