Bladder cancerLow- and intermediate-risk NMIBC: surveillance or intravesical therapy?
Mason (67 years old)
Mason, 67 years old and otherwise healthy, enjoys creating postcards. He always uses a lot of glitter, coloured feathers and gold- or silver-coloured pens. His final touch is a hint of perfume.
He underwent TURBT of a papillary tumour at the right bladder wall, which was detected during a cystoscopic examination for painless haematuria.
Early post-TURBT situation
- Resection visually complete
- Papillary tumour of 2 cm with a visual appearance suggesting a low-stage, LG superficial tumour
The patient received 1 immediate chemotherapy instillation. The pathology report indicates a pTa LG tumour (no muscle in specimen, no lymphovascular invasion [LVI]).
