Will I lose my bladder?

Many bladder cancer patients worry that they will lose their bladders to their cancer. While it is unavoidable in some patients, doctors do everything in their power to save patients from permanently life-altering treatments like bladder removal, or cystectomy.

What happens if I have a cystectomy?

Cystectomy is a last resort that is only considered after everything else has failed or if the cancer becomes too powerful. In a partial or segmental cystectomy, only the cancerous portion of the bladder is removed while the rest is spared.

In a radical cystectomy, the entire bladder and any nearby organs are removed. In men, this includes the prostate and other sex glands. In women, a radical cystectomy can include the removal of the uterus and even some inner parts of the vagina.

After these procedures, sexual function may be hampered for a long period of time, but it does usually return.
