Something unidentified on MRI

Hello Lacy... I'm glad your BCG treatments are going well, but sorry you've received this recent unsettling report.

I am not familiar with anything like that and since we are not medical people here, would not even venture a guess as to what that might be.

I hope your referral appointment at Cleveland Clinic is coming up soon. Please let us know how that goes. They are one of the top hospitals in the country, so you will be in good hands there.

Best wishes... Catherine

Lacy, welcome but sorry you have such a vague and unknown diagnosis. As a man I wouldn't even to begin to guess what that mass might be. I just wanted to encourage you to swiftly get to that Cleveland Clinic as per so many have indicated, they have a great reputation in fighting any cancer and they are really well though of on bladder cancer.

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

I'm a 54 yr old women, diagnosed in September of this year with low grade papillary bladder cancer and had TURBT surgery Sept 17. Due to having many small tumors, I was advised to start BCG. I have had 3 so far and doing ok but have continued with my pre diagnosed symptoms of bloating, nausea, fatigue,etc. My dr ordered an MRI due to a mass on my ovary and some spots on my liver. The MRI showed that the ovary mass was just a cyst and the spots on my liver were just benign lesions. However, the MRI picked up something new ....an "enhanced nodule either arising from the roof of my bladder or located under my uterus." I followed up with my urologist who said it wasn't coming from my bladder and my OB/GYN said he didn't think it was coming from my uterus. It's about 4cm x 1.6cm. I was referred to the Cleveland Clinic for evaluation since neither of my doctors know what it is. It is located in the space where your uterus sits on top of your bladder so it is hard to tell exactly where it is originating from. Has anyone had something similar?
