A -- BRAZIL, WOMAN 63 YEARS OLD - her father died of lung cancer in 1982 - the sister of her father (aunt) had bladder cancer around 1980 (surgery and no further cancer).
B.- her CANCER IN BLADDER was discovered due to a jump of one dog with the legs against her abdomen ( strong pain in the area and then "blood in the urine").
-- TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION was made. The verbal information was area of resection of 3 or 4 sq.cm. and the tumor life of 2 or 3 months (a little son of pit-bull)/ was totally removed / not arrived to the muscles.
C - RESUME OF HISTOPATHOLOGIC EXAMINATION:
-- (bladder)carcinoma urothelial cells high grade pappilary not invasive.
-- (tumor) several fragments/pieces of irregular tissue, "slightly grainy", firm and elastic color clear/brown, being the measure of the entirety/set 50x36x14mm.
D --TREATMENT: instillation in the bladder for six weeks with a solution of 80 mg of BCG weekly during one hour.
FINAL WOULD THANKS FOR IDEAS/ORIENTATION/EXPERIENCES AND MODERN KNOWLEDGE:
- Is it correct that in her case the cancer do not goes to other organs ( methastesis ) and, normally, only attacks/goes inside the bladder?; with adequate bladder treatment we do have a big possibility of "no methastesis"?.
- Are there any help/remedies or unnoficial trial remedies to improve her immunity, to help? Please: informations about possible future treatment and suggestion of examinations.
- we are treating the problem with a very known and good urologist; is it very important to contact oncologists to see/hear other possible ideas?
