Q: After many medical tests and check-ups, my doctor said that my bladder cancer is aggressive. What’s the prognosis of aggressive bladder cancer?
A: For a person with low-grade bladder cancer, his prognosis is relatively favorable. However, aggressive bladder cancer is equivalent to higher-grade cancer. The higher the grade, the less favorable the prognosis. High-grade tumors have a greater risk of disease progression.
Prognosis depends on many factors. Only your doctor who is familiar with your medical history, characteristics of your cancer and the specific treatment you tried can give you a more accurate prognosis you want.
