If it is stage 1, no sweat.

I had stage 1 (adenocarcinoma) and had my bladder removed in 1989 at age 45

Never had a UTI since then, even with a urostomy ....... here's hoping it is an early stage cancer for you.

You will have many treatment options.

.....and remember a radical cystectomy means no worry about prostrate related issues.
