The urinary bladder is present in the lower abdomen (pelvis) in form of a hollow organ. Its main function is to collects and stores urine which is produced by the kidneys.
Urinary Bladder cancer is caused by the rapid, uncontrollable abnormal growth of bladder cells. Cancer cells usually grow in the lining of the bladder. From there they further spread to the lining of the muscular wall of the bladder.
Basically, there are three types Urinary bladder cancer which are:
- Transitional cell carcinoma – It starts in the transitional cells of the inner layer of the urinary bladder. It is the most common type.
- Squamous cell carcinoma – It is rare cancer and it starts in thin, flat squamous cells of urinary bladder due to the presence of a long-term infection or irritation inside it.
- Adenocarcinoma – It is also rarely caused. It develops when the glandular cells in the bladder are suffering from long-term bladder irritation and inflammation.
Most frequently seen symptom in people with bladder cancer is having blood in their urine without any pain while urinating. Besides this, there are numerous other symptoms which might be indicative of bladder cancer like fatigue, weight loss, and bone tenderness, etc.
So, main symptoms of urinary bladder cancer are:
- Blood in the urine
- Painful urination
- Frequent inconsistent urination
- Urgency of urination
- Urinary incontinence
- Pain in the abdominal area
- Pain in the lower back area
- Hematuria is the most common and general symptom indicating bladder cancer. It is found in almost 80–90% of the patients.
- Patients with advanced cases of the disease refer pelvic or bony pain, lower-extremity oedema, or flank pain. Not much frequently does a palpable mass can be detected on physical examination.
It is been found and researched that tobacco smoking is the main known cause of urinary bladder cancer.
There is a linear relationship between the smoking duration (in years), the number of pack-years and bladder cancer risk.
Quitting smoking though reduces the risk, but former smokers are always likely to be at a higher risk of bladder cancer compared to non-smokers.
Most of the bladder tumours also result from certain occupational exposure in the workplace to certain carcinogens like as benzidine. 2-Naphthylamine, which is present in the cigarette smoke, puts people at risk of developing bladder cancer.
Other factors that can be responsible towards causing bladder cancer are Obesity though this can be changed.
Individuals who are at the risk of having this are those with certain habits like:
- Smoking increases the risk of having cancer.
- Cancer-causing agents like carcinogens.
- Chronic bladder infections.
- Low fluid intake.
- Eating a high-fat diet.
- Being a male.
- Being elderly above 55 years of age.
- Family history.
- Previously exposed to radiation therapy.
Since the bladder cancer is associated with blood in the urine so most frequently the investigation of the cause of the bleeding in the urine is determined. The tests conducted for determining the bladder cancer are:
- Urinalysis: It is a urine tests wherein blood in urine, any presence of infection is ruled out.
- Urine Cytology: A urine sample is taken in which centrifugation is done wherein the sediment is examined in order to detect the malformed cancerous cells which are mostly shed in the urine.
- Ultrasound: An ultrasound is done to detect bladder tumours. It also helps in detecting the presence of the inflammation in the kidneys in case the bladder tumour is located at a place where it obstructs the urine flow from the kidneys to the bladder. Other causes of bleeding like due to stones in the urinary system or because of the prostate enlargement which coexists with a bladder tumour can also be easily detected by ultrasound.
- CT Scan/MRI: A CT Scan or MRI is done to detect similar tumours in the kidneys or bladder and it can also detect other causes of bleeding effectively than ultrasound.
Cystoscopy and Biopsy: This is the most probable single most important bladder cancer. And in this, there is no chance of missing on the bladder tumours as it can be in the case of other imaging investigations be it ultrasound or CT scan or MRI.
CANDROL acts as a “cancer vaccine” for a variety of cancer condition, so the use of candrol as a prophylaxis is tremendous in non-cancerous population to fight the “carcinophobia” especially for those people who have a strong family history of cancer.
It is the only cancer treatment centre in the country doing research in” “stem cell therapeutics” through homeopathy principles and “tautopathy.”
CANDROL is emerging is the only hope for terminal cancer patients and for newly diagnosed patients combining both CANDROL and conventional therapies is indicated to reduce disease load immediately.
There is no contradiction with any other therapy is noted so far so candrol can thus be taken along with any other parallel therapy.
There is the prevention of recurrence of cancer to the maximum extent possible is only possible by CANDROL.
The quality of life enhances by the use of CANDROL to a great extent.
So, book an appointment with Dr. Rishi for satisfactory guidance and understanding and be relieved from the disease.
