Hi, my name isXXXXX and I would like to try and help you.

 

Did you have a cystoscopy where they placed a scope through your penis into your bladder, or just test the urine itself?

Just a urine test

 

It is not very specific in terms of diagnosis. The best way to determine if there is any bladder cancer is with a cystoscopy.

 

You can get atypical cells and blood in the urine from inflammation/infection.

 

Has your doctor scheduled a cystoscopy?

What is a cystoscopy?

 

This is a test in which a skinny fiberoptic camera is placed through the penis into the bladder and biopsies can be taken.

 

It is done under light anesthesia and is very well tolerated.
