Thank you, Sarah Anne, for the advice. The oncologist that I will be seeing, is Dr. Jue Wang. He has written a brief paper on this type of cancer, so I’ll see what he has to say. We were expecting, per the surgeon, for the pathology to determine the stage and grade of the tumor. Neither was given in the report, although I assume that the type of cancer it is, kind of gives the grade. I’ll post back after seeing Dr. Wang tomorrow afternoon.
Thanks again.

This is, as you have discovered, not a common bladder cancer. You would do well to be seen at a place that specializes in out-of-the-ordinary cases. I would truly recommend that you contact Dr. Agrawal at the National Cancer Institute. He would be able to give you suggestions on where you might need to go

Dr. Agarwal is very easy to talk with and would be glad to help if he can.

So, yesterday I was told that I have Primary signet ring cell adenocarcinoma of the bladder. I don't see the Oncologist until Monday afternoon. After quite a lot of research, this doesn't look too promising and is of course not what we were hoping for. There doesn't seem to be an awful lot of information available on this type of bladder cancer. Can anyone shed any light on it for me?
Thank you.
