Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is a common tumor in the urinary system. Bladder cancer occurrence is closely related to the environment. How to prevent it from being attacked by bladder cancer must first be aware of this disease and avoid contact with pollution sources.

Bladder Cancer Symptoms Female

·         Painless hematuria: a phenomenon in which blood is present in the urine for several days, or sometimes hematuria, and sometimes urine.
·         Frequent urination, urgency, but less urine, painful feeling (may be blocked by the tumor urinary tract, causing bacterial infection or bloating).
·         Difficulties in urination and obstruction.
·         Back pain or lower abdomen, perineum, penile pain.

Bladder Cancer Causes

Bladder cancer is often related to exposure or inhalation of carcinogenic factors, or to certain metabolites and cellular genes in the body. When these carcinogenic factors are metabolized in the body, they will be excreted in the urine. If the carcinogen is contained in the urine for a long time, the bladder mucosa will contact with the carcinogen for a long time, which will lead to cell degeneration and then evolve into bladder cancer. 
Bladder cancer is mostly derived from metastatic epithelial cells and is associated with some industrial products, pigment dyes, drugs, smoking, urinary tract infections, cystitis, and intravesical parasites. The certain metabolites in the body and the genes of the cells themselves play important factors.

Bladder Cancer Treatment

Mainly based on transurethral resection, radiation therapy, and injection of anticancer drugs. Usually, in the first and second stages of bladder cancer, transurethral resection is performed, and the prevention and treatment effect is good. After the third stage, surgery should be performed for partial or total resection of the bladder.

Bladder Cancer Prognosis

Because bladder cancer grows slowly, the patient's survival rate is still high as long as it can be detected early. However, the recurrence rate of bladder cancer after surgery is extremely high.
The patient's prognosis is best checked every three months within one year, and then changed to half a year after one year, in order to find recurring cancer cells as soon as possible. After surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or BCG injection will be used to prevent recurrence.

How to Prevent Bladder Cancer

·         Reduce contact with dyes and organic solvents. Practitioners engaged in textile, hair dyeing, leather, chemical, agricultural, and printing industries should take protective measures (such as wearing gloves, masks, rain boots, etc.) when working, and it is best to follow the rules of regular health check.
·         Eat less pickled foods and avoid foods that contain preservatives, saccharin, artificial sweets and nitrites. Eat more foods rich in vitamins A, C, and B6.
·         Drink more than eight cups of water a day, go to the toilet regularly, and don’t be forced to urinate.
·         Quit smoking.

Check your body regularly. At present, the methods for examining bladder cancer mainly include ultrasonic, cystoscopy, image photography and laser light instruments. Among them, laser light instruments are the most reliable and can detect cancer cells at the earliest, so that patients can receive treatment as soon as possible.
