Bladder cancer develops when the cells in bladder tissue start to divide uncontrollably. Rather than growing and dividing in a regular pattern, these cells get mutations that enable them to proliferate uncontrollably. These abnormal cells combine to produce a tumor. Bladder cancer usually starts in the cells (urothelial cells) that line the lining of your bladder, which is a hollow, muscular organ in your lower abdomen that collects urine.

A urine sample might be submitted to a laboratory to be examined under a microscope for malignant cells. This test has the potential to identify cancer cells. However, the absence of cancer cells does not rule out bladder cancer. If the symptoms point to bladder cancer, more tests are performed to confirm or rule out the diagnosis.
Cystoscopy is routinely used to confirm the presence of a bladder tumor. The cystoscope is inserted into your bladder via the water pipe (urethra). A cystoscopy that is performed just to examine your bladder is generally performed under local anesthesia. A general anesthesia is frequently used when a procedure, such as removing a tumor using a cystoscope, is performed.
Special urine tests
Urine tests that may identify bladder cancer have been developed. Urine tests, for example, the UroVysion test, the ImmunoCyt test, and the NMP-22 test. These tests identify chemicals, proteins, and chromosomal abnormalities produced by bladder cancer cells in urine.
This is a painless and safe procedure that employs sound waves to generate pictures of organs and structures inside your body. An ultrasound scan may be used to diagnose bladder cancer.
CT (computed tomography) scan
A CT urogram is a specific sort of CT scan that takes images of your urinary system. This is sometimes done to look for a bladder tumor.
- Surgery to remove the cancer cells. This may involve transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) to identify and remove cancer found only in the bladder’s inner layers. Cystectomy is a surgical procedure in which a doctor removes all or part of the bladder.
- Intravesical chemotherapy is used to treat malignancies that are restricted to the bladder lining but have a high risk of recurrence or progression to a more advanced stage.
- Systemic chemotherapy is used to improve the chances of a cure in patients undergoing bladder removal surgery, or as a primary treatment when surgery is not an option.
- Radiation therapy is used to eliminate cancer cells and is often used as a primary treatment when surgery is not an option or is not acceptable.
Immunotherapy is used to stimulate the body’s immune system to combat cancer cells in the bladder or across the body.
- Targeted therapy is used to treat advanced cancer when other therapies are ineffective.
