Bladder Cancer Treatment

Overview of treatment for bladder cancer
Surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapy can be used separately or in combination to treat bladder cancer. However, different treatments will be needed depending on grade and stage of bladder cancer.

Your consultant will talk to you about the treatment options for your particular type of cancer. You may be given a choice of treatments, but we will make sure you are fully informed as to the strengths and weaknesses of each one so you can make an informed decision.

Carcinoma in situ (CIS) is very early bladder cancer. It can be fast growing and the usual treatment involves a resection of the bladder tumour (cutting the cancer out of the bladder) followed by treatment of the inside of the bladder (intravesical therapy) with either chemotherapy or immunotherapy. This type of treatment has a 60% success rate for CIS.

If the CIS does not clear up completely, further surgery and intravesical therapy can be used as additional treatment.
