How to choose a treatment with your doctor

When you were diagnosed, your urologist probably did a biopsy. There’s a chance your urologist was able to remove the entire tumor during that biopsy. Even so, treatment following the removal of the tumor can help ensure any lingering cancer is taken care of.

When it comes to choosing a treatment, the most important thing to keep in mind is the grade of your cancer. Click Low grade or High grade above to see the different treatment options for each grade of UTUC.

Your other medical conditions, including whether you've had kidney problems in the past, can also factor into your treatment plan.

If you haven’t talked to your urologist about whether your cancer is low or high grade, be sure to ask. For help with how to talk to your doctor and the right questions to ask, be sure to visit the Talk with your doctor tab above.
