Transitional Cell Carcinoma Treatment

Transitional Cell Carcinoma Treatment: Clinical Trials

Before starting transitional cell carcinoma treatment, patients may want to consider taking part in a clinical trial. A treatment clinical trial is a transitional cell carcinoma research study that is meant to help improve current treatments or obtain information on new treatments for patients with transitional cell carcinoma. When clinical trials show that a new transitional cell carcinoma treatment is better than the standard treatment, the new treatment may become the standard treatment.
 

Transitional Cell Carcinoma Treatment: Follow-up Care

Follow-up care after treatment for transitional cell carcinoma is important. Even when there are no longer any signs of cancer, the disease can return if undetected cancer cells remain somewhere in the body after transitional cell carcinoma treatment. During follow-up for transitional cell carcinoma treatment, the doctor will monitor the patient's recovery and check for recurrence of the cancer. Checkups help to ensure that any changes in a patient's health are noted and treated if needed. Between scheduled visits, patients should contact their doctor if they have any health problems.
