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. If not, then it’ll be important to choose the right treatment for you.
When it comes to choosing a treatment, the most important thing to keep in mind is the grade of your cancer. The grade of your cancer depends on how aggressive the cancer cells are. In UTUC, there are 2 different grades: low grade and high grade. Click Low grade or High grade above to see the different treatment options for each grade of UTUC.
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 theTalking to your doctorpage.
