Innovation and excellence in health and care

If you have been told that you have bladder cancer, you may be feeling shocked, confused and worried about your future.  You will probably want to ask lots of questions and may face difficult decisions about which treatment options will be best for you. We have put together information which we hope will help you understand bladder cancer and the treatments available.

Much of the information on this website is intended for people where there is a high risk of their cancer spreading deep into the bladder wall or outside the bladder. Most people with bladder cancer do not face this risk and many of the treatments you read about here may not apply to you. Your urologist or specialist nurse will be able to advise you.

About bladder cancer

Introduction text: 
Bladder cancer is the seventh most common cancer in England. We want to be sure you understand the condition and the aspects that will influence decisions about which treatment is right for each individual case.

Around 11,000 new cases of bladder cancer are diagnosed every year in England, about 450 of which fall within our region. Many of these people become patients at Addenbrooke's and face difficult decisions about treatment options. To understand which treatment will be best for you, it's helpful to have some background about the bladder and how different kinds of cancer can affect it.
