Treatment of Bladder Cancer

Treatment options will vary based on:
 
  • The type of bladder cancer (see Bladder Cancer Types).
     
  • The stage of bladder cancer (see Bladder Cancer Staging).
     
  • The tumor grade. (The grade tells how closely the cancer cells resemble normal cells and suggests how fast the cancer is likely to grow. Low-grade cancers are likely to grow and spread more slowly than high-grade cancers.)
     
  • The patient's age and general health.
     
In general, treatment can include:
 
Doctors can describe treatment choices and the expected results of each treatment with their patients. Patients should work with their doctors to develop a treatment plan that meets their medical needs and personal values. Choosing the most appropriate treatment is a decision that ideally involves the patient, the family, and the healthcare team.
