Bladder Preservation Protocols

Invasive bladder cancer is often treated with radical surgeries that remove the bladder along with other nearby sexual organs and glands. This form of treatment, while rather extreme, can be very successful. However, it costs the patient their bladder and a great deal of their quality of life. If there were a way to treat late-stage bladder cancer without removing a person’s bladder, patient quality of life after finishing their battle with cancer would be improved drastically.

The Type 2 diabetes medication Actos has been shown to greatly increase a person’s risk of developing bladder cancer. The Actos lawsuit attorneys of Williams Kherkher can help you to pursue financial compensation if you have taken Actos and subsequently been afflicted with bladder cancer.

Bladder Preservation Methods

There are ways to attempt to spare a patient’s bladder rather than removing it through a radical curative surgery. These efforts to preserve the bladder shift the focus to a multi-pronged and aggressive attack of a patient’s cancer. The patient must be ready for heavy chemotherapy and radiation therapy while submitting to numerous transurethral resections of the bladder.

While these methods are only used for a select few, they have been shown to be effective. The five-year overall survival rate for patients undergoing this trimodality therapy (chemo, radiation, surgery) is 50%. And, in most cases, these survivors got to keep their bladders. Unfortunately, bladder-sparing treatment is hard on the body and is not a suitable option for all patients.
