Bladder Cancer (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
No sure way exists to prevent bladder cancer. You can reduce your risk factors, however.
Drinking plenty of fluids may dilute any cancer-causing substances in the bladder and may help flush them out before they can cause damage.
The outlook for people with bladder cancer varies dramatically depending on the stage of the cancer at the time of diagnosis.
