Bladder cancer begins when cells along the lining of the bladder change where they start to group together. Over time, this can develop into a tumor (large group of cancer cells) or can even spread to another part of the body. A common first place for bladder cancer to spread is to the nearby lymph nodes.
Radiation therapy is a treatment that can be used for bladder cancer. The technology we use and the number of treatments depends on how advanced the cancer is (stage) and what type of symptoms you have (if any).
