Urinary Bladder Cancer Treatment in Delhi NCR, India

Bladder Cancer is a malignant tumor formed when the bladder or any other body part produces more cells than required. The bladder cancer can retard the primary function of the bladder, which is to collect urine from kidneys and eliminate it via the urethra. The origin of the disease is not known but certain modifiable behaviours, such as  smoking, and exposure to aromatic amines,  may turn out to be the risk factors. The prominent symptoms of bladder cancer include blood in urine, the constant urge to urinate, painful urination and feeble urine stream. The condition can be either non-invasive or invasive, depending on the extent of invasion of the tumor.

Our Research Centre is a perfect synergy of technology, workforce and compassion. We have a well-equipped Department of Urology Oncology since 1996. Starting with conventional open surgeries, we are now capable of conducting all Laparoscopic and Robotic UROLOGY  procedures on patients presenting with urinary bladder cancer. Apart from curative measures, we also focus on prevention through education and awareness. This is crucial on two counts. One, the early presentation and timely intervention can lead to better treatment outcomes. Two, individuals will achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Our approach towards urinary bladder cancer treatment is holistic. We constitute a team, which includes oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, medical oncologists, surgical and radiation oncologists, counselors, nurses and physiotherapists, for complete bladder cancer management. We are aware that the needs of two patients are not similar. So, we ensure personalized care and evidence-based treatments for anyone presenting with bladder cancer. We have top-notch diagnostic facilities to bring in precision in screening. Be it, Flexible Cystoscopy or Flexible Ureteroscopy, we offer it all away from harm’s way.

We take into account multiple factors, such as presentation stage, age and health status of the patient, before initiating the urinary bladder cancer treatment in Delhi NCR, India. The treatment includes Endoscopic bladder tumor resection, Radical Cystectomy, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. The procedures can be conducted alone or in combination as per the severity of the disease. The patient may also be subjected to Immunotherapy or biological therapy if the bladder cancer is in stage CIS and T1. We are among the select few cancer centres to have conducted the maximum number of neo-bladder after radical cystectomy. Our specifically designed “Pitcher Pot Neo-bladder” does not need much clean intermittent catheterization as required by other neo-bladders.

Types of treatment

If you are diagnosed with bladder cancer, your doctor will discuss the treatment options with you, weigh the pros and cons of each type of treatment and decide what would be the best. This would depend on various factors like the patient’s age, gender, bladder cancer diagnosis results, and overall health condition.

The most common bladder cancer treatment options are:

  • Surgery: This is the common treatment for most bladder cancer patients, though the surgery done depends on the stage of the disease.
  • Radiation Therapy: This treatment uses high energy radiation for killing the cancerous cells.
  • Immunotherapy: Immunotherapy uses medicines to help the patient’s own immune system find and destruct the cancer cells.
  • Targeted Therapy: Targeted therapy aims at targeting the changes in cell that cause cancer. The drugs used for the purpose work positively in many cases when other treatments fail to work.
  • Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy makes use of drugs for treating cancer. There are two chemotherapy bladder cancer treatment options
  1. a) Intravesical Therapy: In this treatment, the doctor places a liquid medication into the bladder using a catheter. This drug stays there for almost two hours so it can treat the cells lining the bladder’s inside without negative effects on other body parts.
  2. b) Systemic Chemotherapy: In this treatment, chemo drugs are injected through muscle (IM) or vein (IV) or are given as pills.

Most of the times, the best treatment plan might combine several types of treatments together. You need to discuss all possible options with your doctor and get to know the treatment goals and potential side effects.

We provide Hyperthermic Intravesical Chemotherapy (HIVEC) and Open/ Robot-Assisted Cystoprostatectomy with Intracorporeal/ Extracorporeal ileal Conduit/ Orthotopic Neobladder for urinary bladder cancer treatment.
