Just a note about a resource that some might find useful. The College of American Pathologists maintains a web site that provides useful and up to date information for cancer patients. Usually the most common diagnoses for each organ system have descriptions of the procedures and treatments for various stages of disease and current grading and staging used by pathologists. The web address is mybiopsy.org . From their there is a menu that lists various organ systems and for once (since it is alphabetical) bladder cancer is near the top of the list. Hope some will find this useful.
