Bladder cancer is often thought of as a disease that affects older men. It is true that bladder cancer is most common in men aged over 55 years, and that men are about 3 to 4 times more likely to get bladder cancer than women. In an online bladder health quiz conducted by Cxbladder in conjunction with International Women’s Day, fewer than half of the 606 respondents knew that bladder cancer is more common in men than women.
Cancer is an alienating disease for everyone for so many reasons. And for those of us who are women with bladder cancer, the alienation is compounded by having a man’s disease that is treated in a man’s world.
