Cis is superficial in nature. unlike tcc is stays on the first layer of the bladder. it is considered invasive if it gets even to the lamina propria unlike tcc. my dad had this and they opted for a radical cycteomly because he did not respond to the bcg like many do. just be careful if the bcg doenst work to consider a more cautouis approach. once its gone deeper the survival is much less. bcg didnt have much side effects for dad other than some buring.
