The symptoms that characterize a bladder that is affected by cancer could be similar to those that characterize prostate cancer.

Symptoms like frequent urination, burning sensation when urinating, bloody urine, pain while urinating and back pain apply to Bladder cancer as well as prostate cancer.

However, there are still other signs that could indicate the bladder is unhealthy.

Dr. David Samadi, a world-renowned urologist and expertise in robotic prostatectomy offers some explanations on the basics of Bladder Cancer and how it could be treated with robotic cystectomy.

In an article published November 27, 2012 in News Medical the surgeon explains that the use of The da Vinci Surgical System for Bladder Cancer can help to reduce shorter hospital stay,  reduce blood loss, and increase  faster recovery, etc. By and large, it is a minimally invasive cystectomy. This approach can still be applied to treat bladder cancer in a man or a woman.

More over the doctor emphasized the use of robotic surgery provides the surgeon with better opportunity to analyze the cancer and provide clean and exact treatment. In the News Medical article, Dr. Samadi was quoted as explaining that: “Whether or not we need to remove the male or female reproductive organs depends on the degree of bladder cancer. Robotic surgery is instrumental in that analysis as it provides an extremely clean and enhanced view of the area for exact cancer analysis during the procedure,”

Basics of Bladder cancer you should know are:

  • you may have increased risk of bladder cancer if you undergo radiation treatments for prostate cancer
  • if you are having painful urination or you are seeing blood in your urine then it could be that you have bladder cancer
  • The more you smoke, the more your risk of bladder cancer
  • Urinary tract infections, bladder inflammation, and urinary stones could be harbinger to bladder cancer
  • Prevention of bladder cancer can be achieved more if you drink more water, avoid fat and cholesterol.

Conclusively, bladder cancer is a type of cancer that affects the bladder of a man or woman. It affects urinary disposals and could lead to death when aggressive. National Cancer Institute reports that about 70,000 Americans may likely be diagnosed with this condition this year.

With the use of robotic-assisted cystectomy, surgeons like Dr. Samadi can get rid of the bladder, improve urinary function and improve quality of life for men who might be at risk of becoming impotent.
