Treatment Options for Bladder Cancer – TURBT
- Endoscopic resection of tumor or TURBT – Transurethral Resection of Bladder is also known as TURBT, first and foremost treatment. It can be used to diagnose the nature of the tumor as well. In the TURBT procedure, an endoscope is passed in the bladder and the tumor is resected and taken out. This tumor is then sent to the lab to find out the nature of tumor and the stage of cancer. Further treatment depends upon the stage of the tumor and cancer.
- Radical cystectomy – If the tumor is in the advanced stage and has spread to the whole bladder, then the whole bladder is removed. The seminal vesicles and prostate are also removed along with the bladder depending upon the spread of the cancer. After the removal of bladder there are two options in the surgery
- Creation of Neobladder – In this technique, a part of the small intestine is used as a new bladder. The ureters are connected to this new bladder to give the patient a normal functioning bladder to store urine and void it when required.
- Creation of Ileal conduit – In this technique, the ureters are implanted in a part of the intestine. This part is then attached to the abdomen of the patient and an outlet is created. To this part, a urine bag is attached which can be emptied when required. The patient has to depend on the urine bag as a bladder.
The preferred method is the creation of neobladder as it gives the patient a better quality of life. It gives the patient almost normal functions of bladder.
- Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy – These are the method of choice when the patient can not undergo surgery. These are also used in conjunction with the surgery in case of very aggressive tumors. Intravesical chemotherapy is given in the form of mitomycin C.
