Hi everyone. I received a call the other day from my mom and dad notifying me that my mother in her late 50's; had been bleeding for around 3 weeks when she urinated. She saw a doctor who did a CT Scan and they found a tumor on her bladder. And was scheduled to have the tumor removed Friday the 15th of January. I asked if they knew if it was small or large with no answer. I know it can either be non-cancer or cancer. And from what they tell me there is a test the doctor can do while she is under to see if anything else needs to be removed at that time, if it tested positive for cancer. Obviously without little information, just what I have typed, I hope that someone out there can help me to be able to ask better questions come next Friday; what to expect good or bad in the future so I can be as supportive as possible for my mother - she is my best friend, unfortunately we live Northern New England ver Florida!! Thank you for all your help - anything factual or links would work too. The best of luck to you all.
