hello to everyone..
Ok we just got home from seeing the Dr and yes we got the path report back. Confirmed that it is indeed cancer. Said it is low grade but he wants my husband to do 6 weeks of the BCG treatment, then they will look at his bladder 2 weeks after that. Then once that is done the Dr wants to do a mantniece BCG 1 a month for 12 months... Does the 12 month treatments make sence to anyone on here ?

It is still too early for a treatment decision. There are so many things to remember and the definitions of words with respect to bladder cancer are somewhat different than with other types of cancer.

"Superficial" means that it is on the surface of the bladder. The pathology report will confirm this. But "superficial" does not indicate anything about the GRADE of the tumor. The pathology report will indicate whether it is "low grade"
meaning unlikely to spread rapidly, or "high grade" meaning it has the potential to spread quickly. If it is low grade, you most likely will be on the cystoscopy-every-three-months watch program. If it is high grade the urologist will probably recommend further treatments, likely BCG.

Of course, bladder cancer has the sneaky habit of returning. It is low grade and does return, the uro would probably recommend BCG or other further treatments.

We will keep our fingers crossed for you!
