Encino Bladder Cancer Care for Seniors

dreamstime_6077590This year, over 74,000 new cases of bladder cancer were diagnosed.  Deaths resulting from bladder cancer numbered almost 16,000.  In the United States, more than 500,000 individuals are bladder cancer survivors.  The cause for the fourth most common cancer among men is unknown.   Transitional cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and Squamouscell carcinoma are three different forms of bladder cancer that may be triggered by smoking, exposure to chemicals at work, bladder infection, and chemotherapy for other types of cancers in the body.  A-1 Home Care in Encino provides superior cancer care for those who wish to stay at home to receive treatment.

Bladder Cancer Symptoms and Treatment

Symptoms of this illness include weight loss, urinary incontinence, painful and frequent urination, fatigue, and bone pain, if the tumor spreads to the bones.  In the early stages of cancer, surgery is often the primary treatment to remove the tumor.  Chemotherapy and immunotherapy are applied thereafter to prevent the tumor from coming back.  In the second or third stage of the cancer, the entire bladder may have to be removed and replaced by an ilieal conduit, a continent urinary reservoir or orthotopic neobladder.  A-1 Home Care in Encino delivers cancer care for all stages of cancer; under the supervision of your loved one’s medical team, our certified nurse aides can work closely with a registered nurse or doctor to provide the best care possible.
