I was diagnosed with bladder cancer (non-invasive) over 3 years ago. After removal of the tumors I elected to monitoring via regular cystoscopies in lieu of BCG treatment. I just had my 6-month check and am now on a yearly test schedule. My urologist is recommending I undergo TURP to relieve BHP. I am concerned about cancer spreading outside the bladder as a result of the TURP procedure. Does anyone have any experience with this issue. What are the risks of the cancer spreading. Thanks in advance.
