Bladder Cancer (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Bladder cancer has a relatively high recurrence rate. Researchers are trying to discover ways to prevent recurrence. One strategy that has been widely tested is chemoprevention.
Another treatment for bladder cancer that is still under study is called photodynamic therapy. This treatment uses a special type of laser light to destroy tumors.
After you complete your treatment, you will undergo a series of tests to determine how well your treatment worked at getting rid of your cancer.
