Bladder Cancer

Radiation Therapy

It is to kill the cancer cells with highenergy radiation. Should a patient be found out not suitable to undergo surgery, he/she may be recommended to have radiotherapy alone or both radiotherapy and chemotherapy at the same time to replace an operation as a radical treatment.


Palliative treatment

If the cancer has spread widely, the priority is to reduce the signs and symptoms and to maintain the patient’s quality of the life. The systemic chemotherapy can soothe the signs and symptoms and improve life quality. Radiation therapy can also reduce urinary frequency and haematuria.
