Cancer Therapy Advisor’s Christina Bennett reports that a recent study demonstrated that “most Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities perform cystoscopic surveillance at similar frequencies for patients with low-risk or high-risk early-stage bladder cancer during the 2 years after diagnosis.1This finding is in contrast with current cancer care guideline, which recommend aligning surveillance frequency with cancer risk. (In other words, high-risk patients undergo surveillance more often than low-risk patients.) The study was published online September 28, 2018, in JAMA Network Open.”
