May is Bladder Cancer Awareness Month. As I am a bladder cancer survivor, I wanted to share the following information:
“Bladder cancer is the 5th most common cancer in Canada with close to 9,000 new cases every year. It ranks number 4 in men and number 12 in women. Caught early, the prognosis is excellent for most people. Caught late, it can be a life-altering or life-ending disease. Once diagnosed, lifetime urology checkups will be required.”
Blood in the urine is the most common sign of bladder cancer.
If you see red – see your Doctor!
