Surgery: Depending on the stage and type of bladder cancer, treatment will vary. This includes observation, instilling medicines into the bladder (bcg), radical surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. The appropriate treatment will be dependent on the stage, type of cancer, and patient preference.
