STAGES OF BLADDER CANCER
Stage CIS: Flat cancer limited to the innermost lining of the bladder. It is high grade. Stage T1: Cancer penetrated into the submucosal tissue. Stage T2: Cancer penetrated the muscular bladder wall. Stage T3: Cancer penetrated through muscular bladder wall into the surrounding fat. Stage T4: Cancer penetrated into the adjacent structures (prostate, uterus, or vagina). Regional lymph nodes not involved yet. Stage T1-4N1-2M1-2: Cancer spread out of abdomen/pelvic wall to lymph nodes or distant organs like liver, lungs, or bones.
Hematuria Urinary tract infection
• Pain with metastasis • Any change in voiding/urine
PHYSICAL EXAMINATION URINALYSIS URINE CYTOLOGY CYSTOSCOPY
CT SCAN PYELOGRAPH Y BIOPSY ULTRA SOUND
Stop smoking Avoid exposure to industrial chemicals Avoid exposure to arsenic Eat healthy food Adequate fluid intake
MANAGEMENT Depends on:- Grade of tumor Stage of tumor Multicentricity
SURGICAL MANAGEMENT Transuretheral resection Cystectomy
Intra venous Intra vesical Topical
Intra-vesical BCG effective in: Superficial transitional cell carcinoma Carcinoma in situ Decreasing tumor progression
Radiation treatment can be used: As part of the treatment for early stage bladder cancer, after limited surgery As the main treatment for people with early stage cancers who can’t have surgery As part of the treatment for advanced bladder cancers To help prevent or treat symptoms caused by advanced bladder cancers
•Transurethral resection •Chemotherapy •Radiotherapy Trimodality therapy
Treating hematuria Hydrostatic therapy Instillation of formalin, phenol or silver nitrate
Other modalities of treatment….. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) Targeted therapies Gene therapy
COMPLICATIONS Regional metastasis through pelvis Metastasis to liver, lungs and bone
NURSING ASSESSMENT HEMATURIA RISK FACTORS IRRITATIVE VOIDING SYNDROME FATIGUE WEIGHT LOSS
