How Well It Works
Mitomycin is an effective antitumor medicine. It is often combined with other cancer drugs and is used for several types of cancer, including cancer of the bladder. The type and extent of a cancer determines how effectively this medicine slows or stops the growth of cancer cells in the body.
When mitomycin is administered directly into the bladder, it may help prevent bladder cancer from coming back.
