Bladder cancer is a type of urinary tract cancer that originates in the bladder, an organ that stores urine and is located in the pelvic area.
Radical cancer treatment seeks to control rather than destroy tumours. … The idea draws on Charles Darwin’s 150-year-old theory of evolution and recasts tumours as diverse ecosystems of cells which can be manipulated to prevent them from growing out of control.
