I'd bet anything it's inflammation.. probably prostatitis which is very common and supposedly does not lead to cancer.

Just wanted to let you all know that ALL tests came back very normal (CT & Scope).  "Unremarkable" - I guess it's the only time in life, we actually want to be unremarkable.  ;)

FANTASTIC [/color][/b]

I watched the flexi and my hubby has the best looking inside of a bladder I have ever seen!

If it is not a leading question just howmany men's bladders have you peered in? Is this a qualititive or quantitive analysis  :-/ Alternatively are you a member of a fettish club  ;) By all means plead The 5th.  ;D 

Doc said we'll just recheck blood/urine in 6 months.  So, there was no diagnosis - he said just one of those that is an I don't know.  He's a good doctor and I trust him - with a urology/cancer group here that is well respected.  
So, thank you all for your support!!  

I am sure you are in luck and it is A-OK but several comments - NEVER assume it is the same again if you get symptoms again. NEVER miss a check-up, Never ignore ANY symptoms and NEVER be complacent.
Cancer can sometimes be friendly and docile like a pussy cat and turn out to have the rage of a tiger if you let it take hold.

I don't want to be the one that brought vinager to the bottle party but be both aware and beware - my TCC presented exactly like this and it took 2 instances of hematuria and 2 years to eventually locate it - That IS very rare but pay attention to every detail from here on in - Your husband was not supposed to pee claret and they have not given you a reason why he did!

That said the chances of it being Cancer are miniscule.

Good luck and enjoy your lives - remember my very first post on this thread  ;)

Regards,
Greg L-W.

Hi Skeech

 The worse they can do is say no. There was a screen to watch what the scope was seeing inside the bladder and the doctor explained the different things as she scanned different areas (and NO Greg she never mentioned coral reef.....that was my own interpretation  :P)

Wow you get Telly for a flexi! My hospital urology department use the single lens scope for check u-p-s and telly in theatre with the rigid!

I always watch whenever I can as it makes for intelligent conversation and informed decision making - rather than becoming A N Other on a production line!

As for coral reefs I'm more for the reefs off Malindi and the Maldives and the ones in the South China Sea and Malluka - so much more colour! ;)

Nevt year when this is history perhaps 8-)

I was much relieved to see that the procedure was not painful for hubby.  That was my concern but he never even flinched---I however wanted to sit down and cross my legs!

Everyone expects pain but I've never experienced it - I do concede that I can think of more pleasant activities ;D
As for cross legged I do remember one occasion when the Doctor had started a second bag of fluid during a flexi check and I suddentl realised the two nurses were standing cross legged so I asked what effect all this fluid had on them ;D One of the nurses left the three of us in fits of laughter as she had to dash off!

I would love to be in the operating room tomorrow for his surgery but there is too much red tape.  Bummer.

I think you would be surprised at how similar to his check up the actual procedure is. The removal is either a hot wire hoop, or a hot spoon scoop then to close any wound a small ball roller is used to quarterise the damaged area, placing a protective scab/blister over the wound (meat welding!).
The surgeon then goes fishing with a small basket and catches any tissue samples for biopsy.
A quick, thorough check around the rest of the bladder and that is it.

As for the statisitics that were rattled off by the doc, don't let that bog you down.   [smiley=thumbdown.gif]

Never forget that all statistics are made up of survivours and failures and much of your position on that graph is up to you doing sensible things - STOP smoking, avoid carcinogenic chemicals, drink lots of fluid (NOT bottles of Jack Daniels!), Pee frequently avoiding urine retention.

I'm new at this too but stick around!  These people will have you feeling better in no time.  Keep us posted!  ;)

And if we can't do it Mrs. Carpenter will lend you one of her bongs!

regards,
Greg L-W.
