Non invasive urethra cancer treatment

You couldn't have picked a better place to go. Dr.Donald Lamm is one of the renowned experts in BCG therapy. I do not know him personally, but he kindly replied to a complicated question I had about BCG therapy. I know of several of his patients and they really like him.

Good choice!

Please keep us informed about how this works out.

Baba,

I concur with Sara Anne in her comments. I did add anti oxidants in moderate consumption of blueberries and pomegranate juice and eliminated those sugary called Coke etc. Don't miss it at all.

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

Thank you I have decided to cancel my trip to Switzerland and go see a new Urologist in Phoenix. Are you familiar with Dr Lamm of BCGOncology?

Baba, I was first diagnosed with non-invasive papillary and CIS bladder cancer over 8 years ago. I had two TURBs and then BCG and maintenance BCG for a period of about 2 years. Have now been cancer-free for over 8 years.

Of course once should eat in a healthy manner no matter what. However, the cancer that we have has been lurking for many years before it becomes obvious. Any effect on the cancer that a "supplement" or "diet" might have would have been needed 10, 20, or 30 years ago. The very best that we can do now is to get the very best medical attention that we can, using tried and trusted treatments.

I'm curious if you have done any diet changes and taking any supplements. Good luck and thank you. I have multiple Dr's and seeking out another. My Dr's in Switzerland continue to mention prostrate and then say and bladder. I have my concerns. Thank you both.
