The goal of this study is both to detect and follow bladder cancer patients using a non-invasive genetic test. Our hypothesis is that urine can be used to accurately detect and characterize bladder cancer at a molecular level by identifying genetic markers specific to this disease. This study will enable a new perspective on the genetics of bladder cancer for a better management of bladder cancer patients and hopefully identify patients that may in the near future benefit from personalized therapies.
