Ere appears to be an increase in incidents, there are several generational skips. What we can say today is that there is no conclusive evidence to suggest any genetic link or familial link or inherited link to bladder cancer. What is 'urachal cancer'? buy viagra from usa buy generic viagra cheap generic viagra viagra online viagra without a doctor prescription buy viagra super force erectile dysfunction pills buy viagra generic viagra viagra without a doctor prescription cheap viagra Urachal carcinoma refers to a malignancy that starts from the urachal remnant. The urachus is the remnant of the umbilical cord. During fetal development, the dome of the bladder is connected through the belly button, through the urachus, and after fetal development that tissue becomes fibrotic and generally disappears, although urachal remnants are seen with some frequency during abdominal surgery. Rarely, however, a malignant tumor can develop from this, and since it is attached to the dome of the bladder, it can present as a bladder cancer. Unlike the other variants of bladder cancer that tend to start in the lining cells of the bladder, this starts within the wall of the bladder and then pushes out towards the lining. It is a rare cancer, but it's presentation is quite different. What kind of bladder cancer presents with the symptom of frequent urination? Most bladder cancers are asymptomatic, in that they do not cause any burning, pressure, discomfort, or frequency. However, carcinoma in situ was initially thought to be an early form of bladder cancer, but is actually a more aggressive form of bladder cancer. Transitional carcinoma can present with what are called irritative bladder symptoms of frequency, urgency, and again these are often treated or assumed to be symptoms of an infection, and often are treated with one or two or several courses of antibiotics before proper investigation is done, and the proper diagnosis is made. Is the mortality rate high for people with bladder cancer? The mortality rate for bladder cancer depends on the stage and grade at the time of the initial diagnosis. Fortunately, most patients who present with blood in the urine and are subsequently diagnosed to have bladder cancer have low grade superficial bladder cancer. It's estimated that for patients who are newly diagnosed with bladder cancer, sixty to seventy-five percent of those patients have low grade tumors. Again, they're still malignant tumors, but they tend to have low propensity to infiltrate the bladder, to spread to other parts of the body. The prognosis for those patients is actually quite good. The likelihood of living five years with superficial bladder cancer is about ninety five percent. The recurrence rate at five years is quite high. It's around sixty percent, but most of those recurrences also tend to be low grade and superficial. The outcome for patients who present with high grade or invasive bladder cancer is different. Those patients have an overall five year life expectancy of just under fifty percent, forty five to forty eight percent range, even with the best of care. Why i.
