The "tumor" team met at Moffitt on Monday to discuss my husband's medical treatment options after the surgery he had a month ago..
The fact that there was a cancerous lymph node in the fatty tissue made a difference in a negative way.
There are many unknowns when dealing with treatments. The adenocrcinoma tumor is found in only 2% of bladder cancer patients vs. a urothelial tumor which is treatable.
Option 1 is watchful waiting with a CT scan every 3 months.
Option 2 is radiation/chemo or immunotherapy...has not proven effective in most cases
Option 3 is a clinical trial using radiation/immunotherapy. Details will be furnished to us if my husband would qualify for the trial. It is being conducted by a group I am not familiar with.
So, not the outcome we had hoped for..but you play the hand you're dealt.
Good luck to all...be safe
