I was diagnosed with Stage I highly aggressive bladder cancer in Feb 2020. As a woman at 58 I am not the typical candidate for bladder cancer and my doctor is confident that BCG is the best option for me.
I cannot seem to find data that BCG contains the cancer within the lining for 10+ years.
I personally know a woman whose husband who was diagnosed with Stage I bladder cancer in his late 70's, did the BCG treatments and 4.5 years later died of Stage IV bladder cancer that metastasized to the liver.
How do I trust that BCG is my best option?
