That is a great initial report. Ta is highly treatable, but it does tend to come back, so you have to monitor for recurrence far into the future. Pathology will have the final word on staging.

Just got home from the hospital following a TURBT today. Very encouraging. The Urologist said the tumor came right out and he expects the pathology to show low grade Ta. He cautioned that the pathology needs to confirm but so happy to fear this. Not sure what the recurrence rate is for this but I guess that's why I'm stuck with a cystoscopy every 3 months

8/9/16: 2cm tumor found on CT
8/10/16: cystoscopy
8/18/16: TURBT; HG Non-Invasive
9/29/16: 2nd TURBT clear
Completed first BCG regimen: 1/31/17
