Answer

The EAU guidelines include schedules for follow-up cystoscopy, urinary cytology, and imaging in patients with TaT1 tumors, depending on risk of recurrence and progression. For follow-up in patients with no visible tumor in the bladder but positive cytology, the guidelines recommend biopsies and investigation of extravesical locations. [69]
