cysto results

Hi Rocky,
Sorry you are back on the treadmill again with a recurrence. I had a "bulge" which showed up on cysto also a couple of years ago. On the next cysto it did not show. My uro did not seem overly concerned, explaining that it was probably the uterus pressing against the bladder. He also said that both the uterus and bowel are both in close proximity to the bladder and all squash against each other (Sounded logical- remember having to pass water more frequently during pregnancy)

Rocky... so sorry to hear this. I would think a CT scan would be ordered to get a clearer picture of the "bulge". Best of luck and as Sara Anne said, let us know as things go forward.

Best wishes... Catherine

Oh, so sorry to hear this!! Yup...the nasty little secret about bladder cancer....if it decides it likes you, it keeps coming back for a visit.

What did your urologist say about the "bulge" His guess would sure be better than any of ours!

Assume that you will have yet another TURB and then a serious discussion about options?

Please keep us posted...will be worrying along with you!!

Had my cysto last week and found out the bc is back . The last time was in 2011.
I have never gone longer than six months between my cystos but this time the Dr. wanted to try for a year. Oops. This was the first time it was put up on the screen so I could see the bc waving around , kinda look like seweed in the ocean. But then on the left side of the screen was a bulge in the wall of the bladder . If you took a ping pong ball and pushed it against a balloon that is what it looks like. No clue for what that is. Anyone here ever hear of a bulge in the bladder wall. Anyhow so now I have to get the bc taken out. As for the bulge maybe it will just go away lol. But I guess they are going to have to figure it out. More to follow. For any that don't know first had bc taken out in 2006, several reccurs since then. But life goes on right !
