July is Bladder Cancer Awareness Month.
Bladder Cancer is represented by Yellow.
Bladder cancer comes in many forms, although 95% of bladder cancers are Transitional Cell Carcinoma’s. Although the rate of new bladder cancer cases in men has remained stable, the rate of women diagnosed has dropped slightly in recent years. About 90% of people with bladder cancer are over 55 years old. It is estimated that about 73,000 new cases of bladder cancer are diagnosed each year in the U.S.
