Only a quarter of all people with bladder cancer are women. Nevertheless, the tumour is often much more aggressive in women than in men. That is why suitable treatment is essential. Alta uro offers you everything from a single source. We use the most modern diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
Bladder cancer is a disease in which the cells of the urinary bladder change in such a way that they begin to grow unchecked. Proliferations develop in the bladder that may, e.g., grow much like corals. The tumours can be anything from a few millimetres to several centimetres in size. Blood in the urine is often the first warning sign of bladder cancer. The most important risk factor known to cause bladder cancer is smoking.
In addition to diagnostics by means of an outpatient bladder cystoscopy, alta uro offers the endoscopic removal of bladder tumours. For this purpose, we use state-of-the-art technologies that help us detect small tumours much more easily. If a tumour is limited to the mucous membrane but an aggressive type, treating it with regular bladder irrigation (so-called BCG immunotherapy) will be necessary. This therapy will be performed on an outpatient basis at our clinic. However, if a removal of the entire bladder should be deemed necessary, we shall provide you with comprehensive advice and are pleased to continue treating you at one of our partner clinics.
