Sara Anne, Thank you for replying to my post. I had been reading online that there could be some connection between longterm use of metformin and bladder cancer. I have never smoked and there is no history of this type of cancer in my family. I have stopped taking metformin as my ovaries were removed and never been diagnosed with diabetes. I'm very grateful that I was able to have two children via ivf before getting endometriosis resulting in the hysterectomy. Now, once I have healed, I will start treatment for the bladder cancer. Thank you again for replying to my post.

Bladder cancer and metformin. I was just diagnosed on March 10th with non invasive bladder cancer. For over five years was taking metformin to treat Poly Cystic Ovaries. On March 3rd I had a complete hysterectomy, removing the ovaries,fallopian tubes,uterus,and cervix. I also had a bladder biopsy done due to inflammation not caused by infection. Has anyone ever been diagnosed with bladder cancer caused by the use of metformin? I can't start treatment for the bladder cancer until I have healed from the hysterectomy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am newly diagnosed. Thank you.
