How often does bladder cancer recur?

In brief: Depends
This depends on what the primary tumor was and how it was treated.
They may certainly recur, but the risk of recurrence and the location of recurrence is totally dependent on a combination of the cancer's stage and the treatment received for that. Do you have any of that information?

In brief: Frequently
Up to two-thirds of early bladder cancers recur within the bladder. Even for patients undergoing bladder removal surgery up to one-third can recur elsewhere in the body.
