Welcome

The American Bladder Cancer Society was born from the hope of survivors of this often overlooked and underserved disease that the future could be made easier for those that came after them.

When faced with a diagnosis of bladder cancer, you and those that care about you are thrown into a freighting place where knowledge is potentially lifesaving. How do you even know what applies to you when you do not even know the questions to ask, what is the difference between stage 1 and 2, what is a cystoscopy? Here you will find many bladder cancer related links, definitions, and overviews on different subjects. Read more...

Second cysto and tumor found Tanzie, A second round of BCG is a pretty normal protocol even if no new tumors are found. I had two-6 week regimens. As Raider indicated it is often done with interfuron on a second effort.

check up Doc, Great news. I always like to read about success. My wife is a redhead and an RN. Were you in for something else by mistake (a little humor here)? She is a maternity nurse.
