How is Bladder Cancer Detected?

Generally speaking, preventive screening for bladder cancer isn’t recommended by the government the same way it is for other cancers like breast or prostate cancer. This is because screening tests for bladder cancer haven’t been found to reduce the risk of death for people with an average risk of bladder cancer. That said, your doctor may recommend screening for bladder cancer if you have certain risk factors including:

  • Previous case of bladder cancer
  • Certain birth defects affecting the bladder
  • Exposure to certain chemicals

In most cases, bladder cancer is discovered because of symptoms like blood in the urine or other urinary issues. While there may be a number of causes for these symptoms, they should always be evaluated by a doctor so the cause can be found and treated as quickly as possible. If the cause is bladder cancer, early detection and treatment always provides the best chances for success.

Treating Bladder Cancer

If you are diagnosed with bladder cancer, your cancer doctor will work with you to discuss your treatment options and choose the one that makes the most sense for your unique case. Every patient is different, and at OC CyberKnife, we strive to create a personalized treatment plan that suits your specific needs and lifestyle. We may use any of the following treatments for bladder cancer:

  • Surgery
  • Intravesical Therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy
  • Radiation Therapy

Because surgery can often remove the entirety of the tumor in early-stage bladder cancer, it’s a common treatment for this condition – but radiation therapy systems like CyberKnife can provide a noninvasive alternative. CyberKnife uses state-of-the-art medical technology to deliver high-dose radiation to the site of the tumor with sub-millimeter accuracy, providing a revolutionary option for treating bladder cancer without surgery. Your doctor will work with you to choose the best treatment for you, and in many cases, we may have to combine different treatment methods to achieve the best overall result.
