Superficial bladder cancer


Therapy:
1 TURB (Trans Urethral Rescission Bladder): it lets us have a histological test and, thus, it allows the determination of the stage of the bladder cancer disease
2 Thulium Laser: the formation can be treated with ablutions or, if biopsy were necessary, it can be incised and treated with ablutions. The use of laser grants an excellent haemostasis and has thus taken the place of TURB. If the therapeutic choice were still TURB, we usually use laser after it so that we can get a better diathermic coagulation, a better haemostasis and a decrease in the relapsing risk.
