PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying quality of life in patients with bladder cancer.
- To study the effects of recurrence and progression on health-related quality of life (HRQL).
- To study the effects of repeat cystoscopy on HRQL.
- To study the patients' assessments of a hypothetical prognostic model and how this affects their preference for the mode of surveillance.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Quality-of-life questionnaires developed by the European Organization for Research and Treatment for Cancer (EORTC) will be used. The EORTC QLQ-BLS24 with 24 questions specific to non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer and the EORTC QLQ-BLM30 with 30 questions specific to muscle-invasive bladder cancer will be combined and used in conjunction with the general cancer questionnaire QLQ-C30.
Assessments using the QLQ-C30 will be made at baseline in the entire cohort of patients. Follow-up assessments using the QLQ-C30, QLQ-BLS24, and QLQ-BLM30 167 will be made at first routine follow-up and annually until the end of study.

The instillation or other administration of drugs into the bladder, usually to treat local disease, including neoplasms.
A measurement index derived from a modification of standard life-table procedures and designed to take account of the quality as well as the duration of survival. This index can be used in assessing the outcome of health care procedures or services. (BIOETHICS Thesaurus, 1994)
Activities and programs intended to assure or improve the quality of care in either a defined medical setting or a program. The concept includes the assessment or evaluation of the quality of care; identification of problems or shortcomings in the delivery of care; designing activities to overcome these deficiencies; and follow-up monitoring to ensure effectiveness of corrective steps.

A quality-of-life scale developed in the United States in 1972 as a measure of health status or dysfunction generated by a disease. It is a behaviorally based questionnaire for patients and addresses activities such as sleep and rest, mobility, recreation, home management, emotional behavior, social interaction, and the like. It measures the patient's perceived health status and is sensitive enough to detect changes or differences in health status occurring over time or between groups.
