Bladder cancers

  • Non-invasive bladder cancer

    In non-invasive bladder cancer, the cancer cells are only in the inner lining of the bladder. They have not spread (invaded) into the muscle layer.

  • Invasive bladder cancer

    Invasive or advanced bladder cancer is when the cancer has spread into the muscle, through the muscle or to other parts of the body.
