Advanced Treatment for Bladder Cancer

Your bladder is a balloon-shaped organ located in the pelvic region of the body. Bladder cancer begins most often in the cells that line the inside of the bladder, where urine is stored. Though bladder cancer affects mostly older adults, it can occur in younger people, as well. The most common symptoms include:

  • Pain when urinating
  • Blood in urine (look for dark-yellow, bright-red or cola coloring)
  • Frequent urination
  • Back pain
  • Pelvic (hip) pain

These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have bladder cancer. They may indicate a urinary tract infection or some other problem. That’s why it’s important for you to call us and let one of our board-certified urology doctors examine you and discuss your diagnosis and treatment options.

Highly treatable, but likely to recur

Fortunately, most bladder cancers are diagnosed early when they are highly treatable. Bladder cancer is, however, likely to recur, even if it’s treated at an early stage. That’s why bladder cancer survivors should undergo follow-up testing for several years even after successful treatment. If you have any of the symptoms listed above, talk to a specialist at Orange County Urology Associates. We’ll help you determine the best possible treatment for you.

Our bladder cancer patients come to us from Lake Forest, Huntington Beach, Laguna Hills, Irvine and Mission Viejo in Orange County, CA.
