Brand new here, with a stupid question.

I already feel insensitive, as I know I'm not dealing with anything like a lot of you are. It's truly not my intention, so I hope that my question will be received in the vein of honest curiosity and confusion that it's offered.

I was having trouble with a kidney stone. I was finally able to have the procedure to have it removed. While the urologist was up there with the scope, he found and removed a tumor from my bladder. Pathology came back that it was "low-grade bladder cancer". He believes that he removed it all, and told me to try not to worry. But he wants me to have cystos every 3 months for the next 2 years, then moving to every 6 months for 2 years, then yearly for the rest of my life, presuming no recurrences.

My real difficulty is how to react to this news. Do I have cancer? Or did I just have cancer removed? No big deal? My mom and husband are kind of treating me like I'm made of glass, and I don't get that as I feel fine. Some others are acting like it's no big deal. I really honestly don't know what to think, or how to describe this situation. Any advice for a brand newbie? Just got the diagnosis a week ago. I appreciate any help anyone can provide.
