Bladder Cancer

Most common in older adults, bladder cancer can often be treated successfully if it is identified and treated early.

Symptoms

Blood in the urine is the primary symptom, although the need to urinate frequently and pain during urination can also be signs.

Diagnosis and treatment

We diagnose and stage cancers using the most current professional guidelines. We perform diagnostic procedures using sonographic and fluoroscopic imaging, as well as many types of biopsies, in our state-of-the-art facility. In our tailored approach, treatment options and recommendations always take into consideration the patient’s age, general health, lifestyle and schedule—even particular fears or concerns about treatment outcomes and side effects. Consultations are discrete, in a quiet setting, and follow-up appointments are designed to minimize anxiety, in a friendly, comfortable environment with minimal wait time. When complex initial treatment is warranted, our academic affiliations allow patients access to the Northeast’s top oncology surgeons and radiation treatment centers.
