Q: My grandfather suffers a lot from advanced bladder cancer. What’s the best treatment plan for it? Is there any hope that he can get recovered from it?
A: You mentioned that your grandfather is at the late stage of bladder cancer, but is it a partial late stage or the cancer cells have metastasized to other parts of the body? While thinking about the treatment plan, his age and health condition must be taken into consideration. If it is a partially late stage, you may consider radiation therapy for him. And if his physical condition is good, a combination of radiation therapy and chemotherapy may be a better option. However, once his cancer cells has already metastasized, palliative treatment might be the only choice.
