My dad was diagnosed with bladder and colon cancer and right now surgery is not an option. What types of treatments is anyone aware of and what are the success rates?

    Jill, one of the best places to start looking is the clinical trials search engines. I don't know of any trials offhand that would be available based on his situation but I would check. You can get an extensive list of them in the Colorectal Cancer Network weblibrary http://www.colorectal-cancer.net

    The other thing I suggest is that, if he has not seen someone at a NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center he should immediately set up an appointment to be seen at one of them.

    Peace and good health,

    If your dad has a tumor that can be seen via CT scan or PET scan, I suggest Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas. They have had great success in killing tumors using an IV treatment of antineoplastons.

    Good luck. Lindo656
