Ask an expert about bladder cancer (UCLH web chat) 

As part of the NHS Be Clear on Cancer ‘blood in pee’ campaign, and tocelebrate 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.

The conversation will focus on diagnosing, treating and living with bladder cancer. Questions related to all aspects of bladder cancer are welcome.

To put your questions to Mr Briggs, simply visit this page on 3rd March at 11am.  Alternatively, post your questions in advance to webmaster@uclh.nhs.uk and Mr Briggs will endeavour to answer them on the day. Or you can set your reminder in the box below.
