Mitosis and the bladder cancer.

By: Bailey Ball

Bladder Cancer is the sixth most common cancer in the United States after lung cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, and lymphoma. It is the third most common cancer in men but only the eleventh most common cancer in women.

On the right is a picture of a man with bladder cancer, and on the left is a doctor helping you through everything.  The 5-year rate refers to the percentage of patients  who live at least 5 years after their cancer is diagnosed. Of course, many people live much longer than 5 years

Bladder cancer cells can spread by breaking away from the original tumor. They can spread through the blood vessels to the liver, lungs, and bones. In addition, bladder cancer cells can spread through lymph vessels to nearby lymph nodes. After spreading, the cancer cells may attach to other tissues and grow to form new tumors that may damage those tissues. See the staging section for information about bladder cancer that has spread.

Risk factors may be more likely than others to develop bladder cancer. A risk factor is something that may increase the chance of getting a disease.

Studies have found the following risk factors for bladder cancer are smoking, chemicals in a work place, personal history of bladder cancer, certain cancer treatments, arsenic which is a poison that increases the chance of bladder cancer.

The cell stages are Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Cytokenisis. Watch the presentation above the find out what they mean and the stages.
