Gina, you can explore options for a second opinion now. Often it takes some time to get an appointment. You will need to get a copy of the pathology report as you want to know if they got a sufficient border to determine if there is muscle involvement. Many people send their slides to another pathologist for a second opinion also. Julie

Hi Gina...yep tell her you're not 3yrs old and can handle big words...BCG is the correct treatment for CIS ... but i think its always a good idea to get a second opinion ...this isn't a wart....its cancer......I'm not sure being in the middle of treatment would be the time to do it...i would have to defer to someone else on that...
Where are you located? Pat
