The cancer inside the Urinary Bladder is known as the Bladder Cancer. It is a very common kind of cancer but is diagnosed early and therefore highly treatable. This is more common in men than in women. It is mostly found on older people as compared to younger adults.
Symptoms of Bladder Cancer
Urine in Blood
Causes of Bladder Cancer
Chronic irritation of the lining of the bladder
Bladder Cancer can be diagnosed through Urine Test, Imaging tests like CT Scan, MRI, Cystoscopy, Bladder Biopsy. Once the cancer is established then the staging needs to be done which means finding out whether the cancer is restricted to the bladder or spread to other body organs. For this PET CT is one of the best test which scans the whole body.
Surgery - Surgical removal of the tumour inside the bladder or complete removal of the bladder is considered as the best treatment for bladder cancer.
TURBT - Trasurethrel Resection of Bladder Tumour is a surgery which is done when the tumour is sitting on the inner lining of the bladder and has not invaded the muscle.
Partial Cystectomy or Radical Cystectomy is done for complete removal of the bladder and other organs like Prostate and Seminal Vesicles in men and Uterus, Ovaries and part of Vagina in women. After removal of the bladder the surgeon has to create a new bladder for the urine to the passed from the body.

The cost of treatment of bladder cancer treatment depends upon the extent of spread of the disease. In case it is localized then surgical resection is possible. However in case of spread to farther areas treatment may be confined to immunotherapy and targeted chemotherapy. Hence the exact cost for the bladder cancer treatment cannot be ascretained as it depends upon case to case. If you have an individual health insurance policy then this surgery is covered after a period of 1 month from the date of inception of the policy. However if you are a beneficiary of company given policy then the surgery is covered from day one. Always go through the terms of your health insurance policy like room rent capping and co-payment to avoid any kind of financial shocks later on.
