The main treatments for when the cancer cells are found only in the bladder’s inner lining (non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer) are surgery, immunotherapy and intravesical chemotherapy. Surgery, on its own or combined with other treatments, is used in most cases.
After treatment, your doctor will follow up with you regularly. See follow-up appointments for more information.

Making treatment decisions
Sometimes it is difficult to decide on the type of treatment to have. You may feel that everything is happening too fast. Check with your doctor how soon your treatment should start, and take as much time as you can before making a decision.
You have the right to accept or refuse any treatment offered, to ask for more information, or to get a second opinion. In some cases, you may be able to take part in a clinical trial that is testing new or modified treatments.
To find out more about decision-making steps, consent and second opinions, read our page on Making cancer treatment decisions.
