Cancer of the bladder is relatively common, with three times as many men developing the problem than women.

It usually occurs as multiple deposits in the bladder wall that often recur after removal.

The risk of developing bladder cancer is higher in smokers, after repeated and prolonged bladder infections, and those who are exposed to chemicals used in the paint, dye and rubber industries.

There are several different types of bladder cancer, but by far the most common being a transitional cell carcinoma (urothelial carcinoma).
