Welcome

The American Bladder Cancer Society was born from the hope of survivors of this often overlooked and underserved disease that the future could be made easier for those that came after them.

When faced with a diagnosis of bladder cancer, you and those that care about you are thrown into a freighting place where knowledge is potentially lifesaving. How do you even know what applies to you when you do not even know the questions to ask, what is the difference between stage 1 and 2, what is a cystoscopy? Here you will find many bladder cancer related links, definitions, and overviews on different subjects. Read more...

Indiana Pouch Leakage My RC was in June 2013, I had some complications and had a ileostomy reversal & Abdominal wall reconstruction in May of 2014 I find I must cath every two and a to three hour in the daytime to stay dry. I can go 3 to sometimes 4 hours at night.
