That is correct in round 2 of BCG treatments. Number 4 which is my 10th treatment.

Hello Alan,

Thanks for your response.

USC and UCLA are the leaders in Urology. And in case someone here knows good doctors in both of them, it will be great.

Thanks,

Diana

Hello Stevemac1027,

Thanks for your response. I wonder did you have CIS and treated with 4 TURBT resections +BCG?

Thanks,

Diana

Yes I have had 4 of them. The last one they thought was ok but going forward it is recommended a random biopsy is done and that did show. TURBT Resection is very very important and determines next steps.

DianaPB,

The TURB while it is used to burn away or cut tumors, it is still mostly a diagnosis tool with specimens sent to pathology for grading and staging. CIS is always considered high grade. Let's trust the TURB will show no muscle invasion and you will be treated with BCG.

I see on another thread that UCLA is one of your treatment centers. I have read about USC's center (which is well respected) but, on UCLA I don't know much about. I have to think it is also very good just being a major university and medical community.

Keep asking away with any more questions. Others will see this.

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

Hello,

I wonder if anyone had TURBT to remove cancer cells for flat non-invasive CIS?

If so, how was the surgery and which Dr. and center did it.

Thanks,

Diana
