Caption: Bladder cancer. Light micrograph of tissue from the wall of the urinary bladder showing cancerous cells (across top, nuclei stained dark). The cells show the chaotic and disorganised growth typical of cancers. This is a carcinoma, a cancer arising from the bladder lining. Symptoms may include passing blood in the urine and a feeling of increased bladder pressure. Depending on the site and invasiveness of the cancer it may be removed surgically or destroyed with heat. If the cancer is widespread, radiotherapy or even removal of the bladder (cystectomy) may be necessary. The prognosis for patients with bladder tumours that are found early is good.
