Definition of Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumors
The method of treating a cancerous bladder tumor will depend on the stage of the cancer, or, how deeply the tumor has invaded the bladder wall. Transurethral resection, or TUR, employs a cautery device attached to cystoscope. It scrapes or shaves off tumors and collects the tissue for evaluation.
If it is a superficial tumor that has not invaded the bladder walls, TUR may be sufficient treatment for the tumor. If the tumor is invasive, further treatment such as chemotherapy and immunotherapy will be required.
Effectiveness of Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumors
Transurethral resection of bladder tumors is a highly effective treatment option for superficial bladder cancer. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is safe with few complications and is the standard treatment for this type of bladder cancer.
