Web chat: Ask an expert about bladder cancer 

25/02/2016 00:00 
We are hosting a web chat on bladder cancer with consultant urological surgeon Mr Tim Briggs.

As part of the NHS Be Clear on Cancer ‘blood in pee’ campaign, and to celebrate the launch of our new urological cancers web pages, we are hosting a web chat on bladder cancer with consultant urological surgeon Mr Tim Briggs.

Bladder cancer is the fourth most common cancer in men and eighth most common in women in the UK. Bladder cancer is where a growth of abnormal tissue, known as a tumour, develops in the bladder lining. In some cases, the tumour spreads into the surrounding areas.

Our expert Mr Tim Briggs joined the pelvic cancer team at UCLH in 2012 where he routinely performs robotic cystoprostatectomies (removal of prostate and bladder) for the treatment of bladder cancer. Mr Briggs specialises in treating patients with bladder cancer using the latest robotic surgery techniques.

Post your questions in advance to webmaster@uclh.nhs.uk and Mr Briggs will answer them on the day. Alternatively, set yourself a reminder on the web chat box below.

Web chats take place via the internet – there is no venue to attend, they are free and you don’t need to register – you can join or leave the conversation at any time during the hour ‘window’.

Please note - you may need to cut and paste these links directly into your browser.
