SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Bladder cancer is the ninth most common cancer.
The chances are higher as you get older, with ninety percent of people who have bladder cancer are over 55 years old.
Smoking is the biggest cause of bladder cancer. But having an infection, experiencing second hand smoke, and having family history of cancer can also factor in.
The most common symptom is blood in the urine and if you experience this go see a doctor immediately.
Surgery is required to remove the cancer cells. Chemotherapy is then used if any of the cancer has spread.
To help prevent bladder cancer, avoid smoking and maintain a healthy diet of fruits and vegitables.
