Sorry - one of those "depends" questions. Could be anywhere from minimum service call charge of $75-150 typically (except in a few very high cost urban areas to $300) to reseal the drain fitting to the tub or reseal the shower head arm pipe; on up to several thousand for tub replacement cost and plumbing and repair/redo of the tub surround or tile if the tub is cracked and has to be replaced. Even a simple concealed pipe leak which might only cost $125-200 for the plumber to repair can run to $400-500 by the time access hole(s) in the drywall or plaster walls or underlying ceiling are repaired and that surface (or even entire room) is repainted to match.

If you end up looking at a tub replacement (hopefully not), you can find several links to that issue right below this response.

Of course, if you let it go then you are potentially looking at significant water damage repair costs, so best not to let it go.
