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...

mucus I've had a studer pouch for close to 12 years now, and lately it seems that I'm having more mucus than usual. It's causing me to have less continence at night. Does anyone know if it's diet related? or what might cause your body to produce more?
