Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumor (TURBT) is a surgical procedure used to treat bladder tumors. This procedure is performed through the urethra without external incisions. The primary goal of TURBT is to remove the bladder tumor or sample the tissue to determine the nature of the tumor and assess the extent of the disease.
This procedure is often used to treat non-invasive or early-stage bladder tumors.
Symptoms associated with transurethral resection of bladder tumor can vary depending on the patient's condition and the nature of the tumor. Some common symptoms that may be present before the procedure or during the postoperative period include:
It's important to note that these symptoms are often temporary and improve over time during the healing process. The patient should follow the doctor's instructions for the recovery period and any necessary postoperative therapies.
