Possible, needs f/u: Transurethral resection of bladder tumor, especially if it is in the very early stages, superficial, is a good treatment approach. Frequent followups and scope of the bladder to insure no residual disease is seen, or treatments with agents injected into the bladder is necessary. Much deeper tumors, called muscle invasive, will require much more aggressive surgical and nonsurgical treatments.
