Your bladder cancer pathology report is essential to determining the stage and grade of your tumor. Your healthcare team uses that information to determine the best treatment options for your particular disease. Once they know the details of your tumor, what is the Standard of Care for your bladder cancer?

With Dr. Matthew Mossanen, Mass General Hospital.

Dr. Lambros Stamatakis from MedStar Washington Hospital Center will share updates on the most-studied known or suspected risk factors and warning signs for bladder cancer. Although some of these risk factors can be avoided, others—such as growing older—cannot. Lear how limiting your exposure to avoidable risk factors such as smoking, may lower your risk of recurrence of bladder cancer.

Understand the warning signs so you can share them with others during May for Bladder Cancer Awareness Month!

Chemotherapy can sometimes be given before bladder cancer surgery (neoadjuvant) with the hope that it will shrink the tumor, resulting in a procedure that has better outcomes. Chemotherapy can also be given in addition to surgical therapy (adjuvant), in order to reduce the risk of recurrence.  This webinar will explain how neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy can be used in treating bladder cancer.

With Dr. Matthew Galsky from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
