Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
Treatment of bladder cancer depends on type of bladder cancer whether it is high grade or low grade transitional cell carcinoma or other type. Stage of cancer is also important whether it is penetrated beyond superficial muscle or deep muscle etc. Treatment options are surgery with chemotherapy or radiotherapy or bcg. Consult your doctor and take treatment accordingly.
