I am having my 6th TURBT for superficial bladder cancer on Monday. I have been smoking for 52 years and had my first TURBT in 2009. My Urologist says that I should quit smoking but I am so afraid that if I do, the cancer cells will go somewhere else in my body. I have an impaired immune system due to the fact that I do not have a spleen and have read many stories about some people that quit smoking ended up getting lung cancer so I am damned if I do and damned if I don't.
