Overview
Bladder cancer occurs when abnormal cells grow in the bladder. Smoking is the biggest risk factor for bladder cancer—people who smoke are twice as likely to get bladder cancer as nonsmokers.
Managing Side Effects
Side effects of treatment for bladder cancer depend on the specific treatment given and can vary from patient to patient. Your cancer specialist will work with you to keep any side effects at a minimum.
