BMC’s Yawkey building doors are now closed as an entrance as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance our campus and provide you with the best clinical care.

All patients and visitors on our main campus must enter our hospital via Shapiro, Menino, or Moakley buildings, where they will be greeted by team members at a new centralized check-in desk before continuing to the hospital. We are excited to welcome you and appreciate your patience as we improve our facilities.

Bladder cancer happens in the tissues of the bladder, the organ that holds urine. There are three types of bladder cancer: transitional cell carcinoma, the most common bladder cancer type, which begins in the transitional cells in the inner layer of the bladder; squamous cell carcinoma, a rare cancer triggered when squamous cells form in the bladder after a long-term infection or irritation; and adenocarcinoma, another rare cancer that starts when glandular cells form in the bladder after long-lasting bladder inflammation and irritation.
