Thanks Alan! This was the urine drop before the scope. and my Uro said it showed abnormal cells, not cancer cells. I do another drop in 6 weeks, I guess it is good to stay vigilant. The good news the cystoscopy was clean.
6 month cystoscopy was clean and Uro booked me up 6 more months until end of April. This was 3 weeks ago. and I received a call today from my Uros office saying that my urine culture didn't show any cancer cells, but some red blood cells. They want me to drop another urine in 6 weeks. Is this call for concern?

Diagnosed August 9, 2016. Non-invasive HG ~0.5cm. TURBT x 2. 5 weeks BCG. All clear until cysto #9 this past Monday. ~0.5cm again but this time it’s right up on my right ureter. So worried that it may be trying to get into the ureter and kidney. Waiting on bilateral pyelogram and another a TURBT. This tumor looks different. First looked like a small coral. This one looks like small fish eggs and not well rounded. Hoping that’s because it is a young cancer. I had a TURP in July and cysto performed conjuctively the with no sign of it then. Came on fast. My fingers are crossed.
8/9/16: 2cm tumor found on CT
8/18/16: TURBT; HG Non-Invasive
9/29/16: 2nd TURBT clear
Completed first BCG regimen: 1/31/17

Yes. We can't change anything anyway. Worry? Nope. Concern, sure. One day at a time. Live for now. Go play golf and put your mind somewhere else than worry. We ALL will die from something, someday. Odds are it will NOT be 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.
