Here are some ...: Radical cystectomy with non-continent (ileal conduit) or continent (neo-bladder) diversion is the standard of care for muscle-invasive bladder cancer for appropriate surgical candidates. So, suprapubic catheter has no position for treating bladder cancer but only in case for palliative care. Meanwhile, would you tell me what is URI bladder cancer? For additional detail? Ask treating Doc timely.
