    Thanks Jack for posting interesting article.

    Please correct me wrong but if my math is right, over 50% of bladder cancer survivors use the life time invasive monitoring and repeated surgery.

    If it indeed leads to reducing the need for the procedures, not only it improves the quality of life of those patients but reduces tremendous amount of burden to our healthcare system. If we can reallocate the reduced cost and resource to the improvement of the treatment and funding on more research on more advanced stages of bladder cancer, we can improve overall the treatment and the quality of life for all bladder cancer patients.

    I hope it becomes the reality soon.

    Incidentally, I have noticed that Cancer Research UK site has very comprehensive statistics on bladder cancer in UK.
