Genetic Predisposition Testing for Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK. It occurs as a result of the abnormal growth of cells in various areas of the Bladder. There are various types of Bladder cancer, each named after the type of cell they first occur in. The most common type of Bladder cancer is the transitional cell carcinoma, a cancer that begins in cells that normally make up the inner lining of the Bladder. Other types include squamous cell carcinoma, a cancer that begins in thin, flat cells that form as a result of Bladder irritation or inflammation that has taken place over the years, and adenocarcinoma, cancers that form from cells that make up glands.

Signs and Symptoms of Bladder Cancer

  • Blood in the urine
  • Pain during urination
  • Frequent urination
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Abdominal pain
  • Back pain

What causes Bladder Cancer?

The incidence of Bladder cancer is associated with a number of factors, both genetic and environmental. Smoking is associated with an increase in the risk of developing Bladder cancer due to damage to the lining of the Bladder. Similarly, exposure to chemicals, and exposure to chemotherapy may increase the risk of developing Bladder cancer. Chronic Bladder inflammation may also be a contributing factor.  A personal or family history of cancer will increase the probability of developing this disease.
