Washington: A study has revealed that combining chemotherapy with radiation therapy could benefit bladder cancer sufferers.
"This may shift the balance from surgery to chemo-radiotherapy as the primary treatment for many patients with invasive bladder cancer," he added.Cure rates for advanced bladder cancer are generally poor, with only around 40 percent of those with this form of the disease living more than five years after diagnosis.The most common treatment for advanced bladder cancer is the complete removal of the bladder, which compromises patient’s normal urinary function.The results showed that the combination of chemotherapy and radiation treatment reduced the long-term risk of recurrence of cancer within the bladder, while also preserving bladder function.The findings will be presented at the plenary session of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), on November 1.
