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...

BCG treatment hygiene I guess for me it will be never used. I am immuno compromised. But I thought the Bcg bacteria were dead and not dangerous.

Abnormalities in eGFR and creatinine levels Welcome to the Forum! I moved your post so that it has its own title and place. More people will "catch" it here. I am afraid that I can't answer your question, but perhaps someone else can. Sara Anne
