Bladder cancer treatment is available for patients from St. Petersburg, Florida, at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. The specialists in our Urologic Oncology Program work together to create individualized treatment plans for each patient. During regular tumor board meetings, our multispecialty team considers all aspects of a patient’s case, including the nature of the tumor and the patient’s overall health, to develop a treatment plan that best serves the patient’s needs. Our team’s dedication and expertise have helped improve outcomes for thousands of patients and enabled them to enjoy a better quality of life.
There are several types of bladder cancer treatment available at Moffitt, and our physicians may recommend one or more of the following options:
- Surgery, in which a surgeon removes part or all of the bladder to eliminate tumors
- Chemotherapy, in which a combination of medications is delivered to destroy cancerous cells
- Intravesical therapy, in which a liquid medication is delivered directly into the bladder
- Radiation therapy, in which high-energy particles or waves are used to destroy cancerous cells
In addition to these treatment options, Moffitt also hosts a robust clinical trials program that gives patients access to innovative treatment options not yet available elsewhere. In fact, our continued effort to advance the research and development of cancer treatment has earned us the designation of Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. With many different cancer therapies available at a single location, Moffitt offers patients a streamlined experience. For individuals traveling from St. Petersburg, FL, and other areas, we can also provide assistance finding local accommodations that provide a clean and convenient place to stay while undergoing treatment.
