Bladder Cancer Awareness Session


Online Session

11am - 12pm

This is a virtual talk on bladder cancer awareness, hosted by the charity Action Bladder Cancer UK  in conjunction with the WELL Programme.


What will be in the talk?

A Patient Support Officer and bladder cancer patient will highlight the following key awareness messages:

  • Signs and symptoms – learn the most common symptoms of bladder cancer
  • About bladder cancer –learn some important facts and figures about bladder cancer
  • Risks – gain an awareness of the risk factors associated with bladder cancer
  • Work of ABC UK– hear how the charity can support patients diagnosed with bladder cancer as well as support research into the disease

The speakers will also be happy to answer any questions you might have. Our volunteer speaker has had his own personal experience of bladder cancer, and therefore will have a great deal of knowledge to share.

Why building awareness is important:

Over 20,500 people in the UK are diagnosed each year with bladder cancer and it is not a rare cancer. Despite this, there is very limited public awareness of the disease and diagnosis can often be late, particularly in women. It also has the highest recurrence rate of any known cancer - up to 80%. Patient outcomes can be considerably improved by early diagnosis - up to 80% survival rate if caught early enough. That’s why we’re dedicated to raising awareness through the work of our charity.
