Large cell neuroendocrine tumor in the bladder.

Hi everyone, my father has recently been diagnosed with large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma in the wall of his bladder. He is due to have a radical cyctectomy which will include taking the prostate and neighbouring lymph nodes next Tuesday. His treatment options afterwards are very slim as he has acute renal failure which he was born with and has dialysis three times a week. Would like to know if there are any treatment options for patients with kidney disease and LCNEC in the bladder?

  1. Sorry to here of your father’s situation. The best place to get seen will be at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne where there are many trials and multidisciplinary meetings. Access to drugs for unusual tumours is often undertaken. Cases can be sent from interstate or regional areas as well. Good luck with the surgery.
