    Some of the best urologists/oncologists are at National Cancer Institute (NCI) cancer centers. If you are in a major metropolitan area, there is a good chance one is near you. https://www.cancer.gov/research/infrastructure/cancer-centers . Also, i f you have not been to the bcan.org web site previously, please go there. It has tremendous medical info on bladder cancer.

    The nearest NCI hospital was a two hour drive away from me, but it was well worth the travel. They are on top of the latest research and treatments for bladder cancer.
