What are the causes of Bladder Cancer?
Although, it is not clear why bladder cancer occurs. Some of the studies have pointed out that it is linked to smoking, chemical exposure, radiation, and parasitic infection. Bladder cancer occurs when cancer cells start to grow uncontrollably in the bladder. Due to the DNA mutations, the cells start to grow and divide in excess which eventually leads to a tumor.

|Stage 2||Cancer cells have spread to the muscle layer in the bladder.|
