Bladder Cancer

An experienced radiation oncology team at Johns Hopkins specializes in the treatment of bladder cancer. As part of a larger multidisciplinary oncology team that  diagnoses and treats cancer, our team of radiation oncology specialists, including physicians, medical physicists, dosimetrists, nurses, and therapists, creates an individualized radiation therapy plan developed for the patient’s specific needs.

Through our clinical research, we offer our patients the most effective and safest therapies available, in addition to clinical trials that patients can choose to participate in.

Radiation therapy is often used to treat invasive bladder cancer, cancer that has extended into the bladder wall or has extended outside of the bladder.  The most common radiation therapy for bladder cancer, usually given in conjunction with chemotherapy, is external beam radiation, including:

Stereotactic body radiation therapy, or SBRT, is also used to treat bladder cancer at Johns Hopkins.

The Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center offers an overview of treatment for bladder cancer at Johns Hopkins.
