Another update to the flow. This is version 4 of my Bladder Cancer Treatment Guide for Patients
Changed "Invasive" to "Invasion into muscle" as some pathologists will label lamina propia involvement (T1) as invasive. While those can be worrisome and require close follow up, RC isn't always indicated.
Also changed the "recurrence" note box to indicate that any recurrence of high-grade should trigger a strong consideration of an RC as a course of treatment.

Thanks George! That's what I'm hoping....to get it into the hands of every newly diagnosed person.
Since so many people, when they first learn of bladder cancer, browse places like this without signing up or asking questions, I'm hoping to figure something out to get it someplace (or some places) that new folks will find.
I just reviewed your MAP. It is almost perfect in its simplicity. I went through the system so quickly, I never had time to analyse the journey.
I can't find fault with the journey. I guess I was stunned to see how far along the path I went so quickly.
Where was this chart when I started? We should make sure this gets into the hands of every "newly diagnosed"

Light a man ON fire and he's warm forever.
