    Three options are available for treating urethral cancer.  Surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.  Surgery is done to remove the tumour cells from the urethra making sure that most of the urethra remains intact. While radiation therapy is done by using powerful x-rays  to kill the cancer cells.  Doctors usually recommend it when surgery is not possible.  Chemotherapy is done to shrink the cancer when it has spread to the other parts of the body.

    Two methods of treatment are available for urethral cancer. One is local which involves removal and destruction of the cancer cells in the specific area while another method is systemic which is used to destroy the cancer cells throughout the entire body. Before starting the treatment,  ask your doctor for clinical trial that would be apt for your wife.
