If you have Bladder Cancer, this guide can help you plan for a discussion with your doctor.

Patient Doctors Discussion Guide 

 Be prepared to have a discussion with your doctor:

What matters most to you?

  • Understanding my potential treatment options

  • Finding treatment with the fewest side effects

  • Identifying a personalized treatment plan

Would you consider enrolling in a clinical trial of a new treatment?

Questions to ask your doctor:

  • Has my Bladder Cancer tumor been tested for biomarkers or genomic alterations? Could I benefit from genetic (germline) testing?

  • What could we learn about my Bladder Cancer through comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) testing to help us plan my treatment?

  • Could cancer genomic profiling find inherited (germline) genetic changes that could change future health management for me and/or my family?

  • What does the comprehensive genomic process involve?

  • What is the financial impact of having comprehensive genomic testing done?

  • Is there financial assistance to help with paying for the cost?

  • How would the results and follow up be handled?

  • How do we get started?
