Bladder Cancer

Follow up after treatment
Follow up exams and investigations after completion of treatment is an integral part of the overall care for the bladder cancer patient. At the time of follow up your physician will do a physical exam as well as some tests to see if you are remaining cancer free. These are very important to make sure you remain healthy and free from the cancer.
