Bladder Cancer - Poor Public Understanding
PR Newswire LONDON, September 27, 2012
LONDON,September 27, 2012/PRNewswire/ --Action on Bladder Cancer (ABC) is deeply saddened over the passing of Andy Williams last night following his year-long battle with bladder cancer.Over [1] 10,000 people are diagnosed with bladder cancer every year in the UKbut recent research from ABC showed that one quarter (25%) of UK men and [2] women wouldn't know what a sign of possible bladder cancer might be. "Bladder cancer is the 4th most common cancer in men and the 11th most [1] common in womenin the UK", commented Dr Alison Birtle, Consultant Clinical Oncologist, Rosemere Cancer Centre,Preston,Lancashireand Trustee of Action on Bladder Cancer."We don't know the details of Andy Williams' condition throughout his battle against the disease, but improved awareness of bladder cancer in the UK is vitally important. Over the last 15-20 years bladder cancer has been in the shadows.ABC is the only UK charity dedicated to improving awareness and understanding of bladder cancer and promoting more research into the illness. ABC's research showed that half of the people questioned have no idea what causes bladder cancer.One in five people think it is caused by drinking too much alcohol, but did not realise the close link between bladder cancer and smoking. "We don't expect everyone to be an expert, but such a huge lack of understanding can lead to people being misdiagnosed and/or diagnosed at a later stage in the disease which can narrow down the best treatment choices", continued Dr Birtle. Up to date information on the disease and advice on how people can help raise awareness is available through the ABC website: http://www.actiononbladdercancer.org References: 1.
