Caption: Bladder cancer. Conceptual coloured X-ray showing cancer of the bladder. The bladder is the large distended orange area at lower centre. The bones of the pelvis (green/orange) are seen around the bladder. Superimposed on the bladder is a coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a cancer cell. Bladder cancer is a fairly common type of cancer. The symptoms include passing blood in the urine and a feeling of increased bladder pressure. The cancer can be surgically removed or destroyed with heat, but they frequently recur, and corrective operations are regularly needed. If the cancer is widespread, radiotherapy or even removal of the bladder (cystectomy) may be necessary.
