Apr 24, 2018 · Bladder Cancer/Small cell bladder cancer in Cancer

I am a 77 year-old male who was recently diagnosed w/ bladder cancer: invasive neuroendocrine carcinoma with small cell (65%) and large cell (35%) features. This is a rare, aggressive, invasive cancer. I have been through two resections and am preparing for a radical cystectomy w/ an excellent, experienced, robotically assisted surgical team. The question I have is the efficacy of undergoing lengthy neoadjuvant chemotherapy prior to the surgery, or proceeding directly to surgery. If there are specialists available for a consult on this rare bladder cancer, i would appreciate knowing how to connect. Thanks
