This year alone, there will be an estimated 80,000-plus new cases of bladder cancer
and more than 17,000 deaths from the disease, according to the American Cancer Society; however, it is with recognition of symptoms and early diagnoses that can help such rates drop.
In this week’s podcast, sponsored by Astrazeneca, we spoke with a patient named Bob; an advocate from the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network
, Stephanie Chisolm; and Dr. Alexandra Drakaki from UCLA Health, about the basics of the disease, how to deal with a diagnosis and the treatment options available to date.
