Blue Light Cystoscopy Significantly Decreases Recurrence Risk in Bladder Cancer Patients

Bladder cancer has the highest lifetime treatment costs per patient among all cancers, as patients often undergo multiple cystoscopies due to the high risk of recurrence. Now, two new studies have highlighted the benefits of the Blue Light Cystoscopy (BLC) procedure in bladder cancer management. More...
