Sorry you have to be here. First take a big breath, until the do a biopsy you will not know what you are dealing with. Three quarters of bladder cancers are non invasive and the majority of those are low grade. If that is the case it could well be something that you deal with by surveillance. I know it is a shock to hear the c word but know that for the vast majority of us it can be handled. I would call your OB first thing in the morning as you will want them not only aware but part of your treatment team ask them to confirm with each other. We will be here every step of the way with you as you have questions just ask away.
