Welcome to Bladder Cancer WebCafé

Bladder cancer treatment information, support and resources

Any cancer diagnosis creates a critical crossroad in life. The goal of this bladder cancer specific website is to help you find answers, relieve some of the fear, reinforce hope and to help you or your loved one find the best path on a difficult journey.

Please note that this site has not been updated since 2015. Although most information on these pages is still valid, some will be outdated, and there are newer protocols available today. However, thanks to the contrubutions of our readers these pages still provide a wealth of information for bladder cancer patients.

I personally recommend this website to all my patients with bladder cancer.<span class="su-quote-cite"><a href="http://blcwebcafe.org/endorsements.asp" target="_blank">Endorsements and recognition for WebCafé</a></span>
