Bladder cancer is treatable, and that’s good news.
We understand some treatments may worry you.
We won’t tiptoe around the biggest question bladder cancer patients have when it comes to treatment: Will my bladder be removed? The prospect is overwhelming, and we understand how traumatizing the thought can be.
Keep in mind that every patient with bladder cancer is unique in their treatment needs, due to whether or not the cancer is localized to a small area of the bladder or has spread. Also, different types and stages of bladder cancer require different treatments.
That’s why our cancer care team will work closely with you and your family to discuss what’s best for the bladder cancer you have. It’s why we’ll help you understand how the bladder works, so the recommended treatment – whether it’s surgery, radiation therapy, biologic therapy or something else – makes sense. We’ll educate and explain so you can make informed decisions all along the way, whatever your treatment may be.
Our expert cancer care team includes urologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and other experts experienced in treating bladder cancer. It includes our compassionate patient navigators, who can help you get answers to your questions, whether they are about your treatment plan, insurance questions or other matters.
You are not alone. We’re here for you, with personal care, every step of the way.
