Chemotherapy for early bladder cancer:

Chemotherapy works by destroying cancer cells. When it’s given into the bladder, the drug comes into direct contact with any cancer cells in the lining of the bladder. Because it’s given into the bladder and not through a vein into the bloodstream, you won’t get side effects like feeling sick or hair loss, which people often associate with chemotherapy. Hardly any of the drug is absorbed into the bloodstream which means that it rarely affects the rest of the body.
