What type of bladder cancer surgery do I need?
The type of bladder cancer surgery you need depends on many factors, including whether the cancer is located only on the bladder’s surface layers (superficial) or has invaded the bladder muscle (invasive).
Most patients -- 60 to 70 percent -- have superficial bladder cancer. If you have superficial bladder cancer, we can surgically remove just the bladder tumor and leave the rest of the bladder intact.
However, if the cancer has invaded the muscle of your bladder, then we’ll need to surgically remove the bladder. Some patients may undergo partial bladder removal, but these cases are rare.
