Memorial Sloan Kettering bladder cancer experts answer questions about bladder cancer treatment, including the use of adult stem cells to reconstruct the urinary tract; chemotherapy for bladder cancer that has metastasized (spread); and nerve-sparing surgery to prevent erectile dysfunction.

Researchers are applying genetic advances to individualize treatment for bladder cancer patients and develop targeted therapies for the disease. Early identification of bladder cancer and accurate characterization of a tumor are important for selecting the most-appropriate treatment.
