Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to learn how different lifestyle factors, such as cigarette smoking and body weight, change after a diagnosis of bladder cancer, and how they influence who gets a bladder cancer recurrence and who does not.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
patients with bladder cancer Behavioral: questionnaires
The study questionnaires (baseline and 2 follow-ups) will capture information on how modifiable factors, including the patients' smoking habits and body weight, have changed since last contact. RSA will conduct this interview at a time convenient to the patient either during a scheduled clinic visit or by telephone.

Other: Saliva and/or urine sample
Patients will contribute approximately 5 mL of saliva at baseline, and at the time of their follow-up questionnaires. If the patient declines to contribute a saliva specimen, they can contribute approximately 10mL of urine. Urine is routinely collected from bladder cancer patients for clinically-related tests. We will also collect urine from every participant for whom the sample is not depleted by clinical tests at the end of the day. Saliva/urine specimens will be tested for cotinine which is regarded as the gold standard to detect recent smoking exposure and is widely used to identify active smokers in epidemiologic studies.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. recurrence [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    will be defined as the presence of pathologically-confirmed NMIBC lesion >8 weeks after diagnosis

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Saliva and/or urine sample
