Is it acceptable to have TURBT from one doctor then go to another for follow up?

A number of people replied to your earlier question on the need to biopsy bladder growths. You need to do so to determine if they are benign or cancerous.

Selection of a doctor to do the TURBT is your choice. You are the only person who can chose your care team.

I had a cystoscopy from a young urologist at a smaller hospital. He found 2 small papilloma and scheduled TURB to remove them in two weeks. He mentioned I may need but probably won't a catheter for a week after. He also said from looking at the tumors that they were most probably benign.


I found another urologist at a bigger hospital who is more experienced and older and don't know whether I should have him diagnose me through another cystoscopy as well to see if he sees the same thing. I don't know the rate growth of the papilloma.

I can't decide whether I should just go with the young doctor who's already scheduled the procedure in 2 weeks or start from scratch with the older urologist at a bigger hospital? I'm in a dilemma. And don't see why I would need a catheter for such a minor TURB. And why the younger doctor even mentioned it.

A Part of me just wants to get it over with, with the younger doctor on the premise that they all do the same procedure similar to a mechanic fixing something on the car.
