My Dad was just diagnosed with bladder cancer-Help

I know about blood clots but this is not a blood clot. It looks more like a dead skin or you know when you have a wound and it gets healed and falls, something like that. Yes, we will let the doctor now about that. I think this is part of the wound inside that is getting healed after the burnings and now it is comming out. I'm not sure of course, I'm just guessing. That is why I wanted to ask you guys if you have experienced something like that.

Ok now that's kind of gross. It is common for there to be clots. He should tell his doctor though whenever passing clots. Feel free to take it to the doctor when he goes next time.

Likely a scab but I am not a pathologist and none of us can really tell you for sure what it is with certainty. There are such things as bladder stones though so a doctor is the best bet.

Maybe it's just me but I'd prefer not to see pictures of anything that comes out of somebody's body other than a baby (and even that only after its been all cleaned up).

Hi Guys,

Just to keep you updated, my dad is already in USA and we are waiting for second TURBT to be scheduled.

I have one question. Today my dad urinated some kind of chunk (not blood) - you can see attachment.

This look like part of healed wound or I don't know how to describe it. The size of it is about half inch. Did you guys experience something like that? His last TURBT was 1 month ago.

Thanks for your responses and help.

Best Regards,
