Description

This contains the bladder cancer recurrences data in a different format. In this study, patients had superficial bladder tumors that were removed by transurethral resection. Many patients had multiple recurrences (up to a maximum of 9) of tumors during the study, and new tumors were removed at each visit. Only the first two recurrence times (in months) are considered.
