    Hey i know a great way for early detection
    Slap about 200 Uro’s upside the head when they give antibiotics for blood in the urine after you’ve waited 4 months for an appointment!
    Works for me!

    Yup, good stuff. Maybe they can come up with a cheap way to test for bladder cancer now that they have sequenced it.

    Cure would be great but even early detection is a step in the right direction. :)

    That’s really interesting stuff, Pat. Hopefully they can come up with this and sooner than later. Thanks as always for great info!

    Yes, Pat! This is one of the first research studies I have seen that appears to be heading towards a REAL possibility of a permanent treatment! Years away, I would guess, but a real step in the right direction.
