Bladder and Kidney Cancer Treatments
(Also see Cancer / Treatments / Chemotherapy)
Administered before or after surgery, chemotherapy is a whole body treatment that destroys cancer cells to stop them from spreading. It may be given as outpatient or inpatient treatment. Bladder cancer patients are more likely to receive chemotherapy than are kidney cancer patients.
Our medical oncologists and nurses educate patients before chemotherapy about what to expect during treatment, possible side effects and helpful tips. Attending physicians are accessible 24-hours-a-day to help manage chemotherapy side effects.
