Less Common Types of a Common Cancer – Bladder Cancer
As the 6th most common cancer in the US, Bladder Cancer is not a rare disease. But within the scope of bladder cancer, there are rare variations that are more challenging to diagnose and treat. Known as tumors with variant histology, they include any bladder malignancy other than pure urothelial carcinoma. Advances in medicine and genomic testing are helping to identify more of these uncommon types of bladder cancer. Urologist Dr. Max Kates from the Greenberg Bladder Cancer Institute at Johns Hopkins is a clinician researcher working to better understand and treat these rare variants.
In this webinar, Dr. Kates will:
• Explain common bladder cancer histology and define how a tumor classified as a rare type of bladder cancer
• Highlight the most ‘common’ of the rare variants
• Provide insight on what can patients do if they are diagnosed with a rare form of bladder cancer
• Discuss the challenges of rare forms of bladder cancer (treatment, clinical trials to develop proven treatments or diagnostics)
• Q & A
