Bladder Cancer Follow-Up Plan

Creating a Follow-Up Plan

Because bladder cancer often comes back, it is important to talk with your doctor about a follow-up plan. That plan will include a schedule for regular testing after the initial treatment. Regular testing may continue for several years.

Your doctor will decide what the best testing schedule is for you. Testing may occur every three to six months in the first few years after treatment. Testing then may continue annually. People with more aggressive cancer may have more frequent tests.
