Bladder Cancer Treatment
Patient Comments Read 7 Comments
Although medical treatments are fairly standardized, different doctors have different philosophies and practices in caring for their patients. If bladder cancer is suspected or is a possible concern of your primary care doctor or internists then they may refer you to a urologist. Urologists are surgeons who specialize in the management of disorders of the urinary system. A urologist is the key specialist with whom a patient diagnosed with bladder cancer will work.
After you have chosen a urologist to treat your cancer, you will have ample opportunity to ask questions and discuss the treatments available to you.
Like all cancers, bladder cancer is most likely to be cured if it is diagnosed early and treated promptly.
Your treatment team will also include one or more nurses, a dietitian, a social worker, and other professionals as needed.
