In brief: Quite effective
Firstly, surgery is usually successful, mostly can be cured by transurethral resection.
(removal via a cystoscope) larger or more aggressive tumors might require open surgery, hopefully the bladder need not be removed, however bowel neobladders can be constructed. Many bladder cancers respond to chemotherapy +/or radiation therapy. Discuss with a uro-oncologist.

In brief: Very effective
Very effective in early stages by surgery and before it spreads out side the wall of bladder, for best results early detection is important.
Late stages complex radical surgery , least effective with metastasis treated chemotherapy and radiation.
