Thank you ladies for the welcome and for the suggestion which I am following. I am also signed up for the Memorial Sloan Kettering patient forum where they suggested I sign up for cancercompas.com I am doing that too! I am determined to become informed.

So sorry you had to join us...but glad that you found us. I don't know of any books, and usually by the time a book is published it is out of date! However, this web site has tons of information...Just go to the Home page, click on the top "HELP" and then on the multiple categories available. I think you will find lots of valuable information...pretty up to date.

A funny thing happened as I prepared to deal with cancer of the prostate: an MRI of the prostate showed something amiss with my BLADDER. So yesterday I had a systoscope, and the prictures were not pretty: lots of polyps.
I was well prepared for the prostate journey, having read the great books of Patrick Walsh and Peter Scardino. I knew what to expect at each step of the diagnostic process and what the treatement options and prognoses were.
Here I am caught completely off guard.
ARE THERE ANY AUTHORITATIVE AND INFORMATIVE BOOKS ABOUT BLADDER CANCER?
