Just letting you know that I'm thinking of you and hoping that your biopsy goes well, and they find NED :)

Take care of you,

As I have been told by my uro, a false positive cytology test is very likely to see after a course of intravesical treatments with a chemo agent. The cystoscopy will give you a much more reliable picture of the situation.

Please try to enjoy the holydays and not to worry too much.

Urine culture of Uring cytology? Not sure if uring culture can tell any cancer cells.

lotech,

Keep thinking positive thoughts.
Cytology has lots of false results; I don't even smile anymore when the cytology report is negative - I wait for the cystoscopy observation or the next biopsy report.

I guess it is of value for some people under some conditions, and as a non-invasive screening tool, but not so much for me. At least obtaining the sample requires only a simple, natural act. <rim shot>

Enjoy the holidays. Take a break. Work it out next year.

Best
Jack

That is really lousy!!! BUT remember that such urine tests are somewhat inaccurate...often showing positive results such as yours when they are not. Hoping that is the case.
