Delay in surgery decreases survival for bladder cancer patients

that cannot be detected by standard imaging techniques. The short survival less than a year among patients whose surgery was delayed more than 93 days is similar to survival for bladder cancer patients in which it is known the cancer has spread.

Some causes of treatment delay were unavoidable and irreversible, such as the patient being too old for surgery or having other medical conditions that rule out surgery.

Cystectomy is standard treatment for bladder cancer that has invaded the nearby muscle. Typically, five-year survival rates after surgery are as high as 80 percent.

This year, an estimated 61,420 Americans will be diagnosed with bladder cancer and 13,000 will die from it, according to the American Cancer Society. The disease affects men three times more often than women.
