Doctor suggested chemo gemcitabine plus cisplatin 1.6 gm. for 2 days and the for day 3,4,5 inj Ancount 300 Mcg. Is this the right way for such a cancer or .. its better to have the kideny removed once and for all which seems to be the primay source. Although the tumer is only 1.2 cm only in the Bladder and liver 4.2 cm and neck 2 cm ..
He suggested 3 rounds of this treatment and will see the progress This was suggested by 2 oncologist ..
Please advise.. is this the right treatment of its better to have the kidney is removed being a Primary source first then ..can do a ..chemo ??..
