Bladder Cancer Prognosis

The American Cancer Society estimated that 63,210 men and women (47,010 men and 16,200 women) would be diagnosed with this type of cancer and 13,180 men and women would die of bladder cancer in 2005.
 
A person's prognosis will depend on:
 
  • The stage of the cancer (whether it is superficial or invasive bladder cancer, and whether it has spread to other places in the body)
     
  • The type of bladder cancer cells, and how the cells look under a microscope
     
  • The patient's age and general health.
