Excellent prognosis: If the tumor is superficial and did not invade the muscle wall , some times he may need limited resection. They tend to be multi centric , need regular cystoscopic check ups. Speak to his urologist with your husband permission you will have all the information you need including additional treatments.

I think: I think you mean he had a low grade blad tumor. He will need periodic cystoscopy to check for recurrent tumors. Every 3 mth for the first yr.If no recurrence,every 6 months for 2 more years. If no recurrence,annually thereafter. Kidney pelvis(both) and ureters will be checked with CT-IVP with contrast once yrly bec the lining epithelium is same as the bladder epithelium. Prognosis low grade good
