Bladder cancer: results of radiation therapy in 384 patients.

Abstract

Between 1957 and 1972, 384 patients with bladder cancers were treated initially with megavoltage radiation therapy. Actuarial five-year survival ranged from 35 to 42% for Stages A and B1 tumors, and was 35, 22 and 7%, respectively, for Stages B2, C and D carcinomas. Approximately 30-40% of deeply invasive tumors confined to the bladder can be controlled with radiation therapy alone, directed solely to the bladder itself.
