Find out how we produce our information|
The information from your biopsy scans and other tests will tell your doctors about the grade and stage of your cancer.
The grade of a cancer gives an idea of how quickly it may grow. Bladder cancer is graded according to how the cancer cells look when the biopsy sample is examined under a microscope.
The stage of a cancer describes its size and whether it has spread.
We have information on grading and staging for non-invasive bladder cancer|, and for invasive and advanced bladder cancer|.
