I have not seen that stat. CIS is kind of a misnomer isn't it?
i had it but i also had a invasive papillary tumor growing out of it that was into the muscle....so probably my CIS didn't go into any statistic books!??
I just finished listening to the multimedia presentation Pat noted under "Articles of Interest" on diagnosis of bladder cancer in women. Came across a stastic I have seen before and wondered about. It states that only 1-2% of bladder cancers are CIS. Is this correct?
