At Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center, we diagnose and treat all types of bladder cancer.
Types of bladder cancer include:
- Transitional cell carcinoma. The most common type of bladder cancer, starts in the inner lining of the bladder or uterine wall.
- Squamous cell carcinoma. Cancer that begins in the thin, flat cells of the bladder wall; may start after long-term infection or inflammation.
- Adenocarcinoma. Cancer that begins in the cells and releases mucus and other fluids; may start after long-term infection or inflammation.
