Subject:Bladder Cancer

I have been winning my ordeal with bladder cancer for almost 16 years. Have had BCG about 4 or 5 times. The last time had a serious reaction. My doctor is now going to try mitomycin.

Are there any other treatments that might work? and, What are the side effects of mitomycin?

Thanks

Mitomycin generally has fewer side effects than BCG. However, like with most drugs, rare serious reactions can occur.
Other drugs for intravesical chemotherapy are available. Examples include doxorubicin, gemcitabine, and valrubicin.
