What is bladder cancer?

0

Bladder cancer begins in the bladder, the organ that stores urine. The wall of the bladder has several layers, and cancer may appear on the surface layer, penetrate into the muscle layers, or even invade the surrounding organs.

The cells lining the bladder and urinary tracts can begin to grow in an uncontrolled manner resulting in the disease know as bladder cancer. Transitional cells line the bladder proper and are so named because they transition from square when the bladder is empty to flat when the bladder is full. Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) is the most frequently occurring malignancy of the urinary tract in dogs. The incidence increases with the dog’s age. Long-term exposure to herbicides and pesticides increase the risk of a dog developing bladder cancer.
