Recently I was treated for UTI with two courses of antibiotics. Since then I have undergone a cystoscopy which showed some redness of the left wall of the bladder. I have been advised to have a bladder biopsy under general anaesthetic. Can you give me any idea of what might be found and how serious it might be?

Medical science is based on suspicion. A redness needs to be ruled out for cancer in your age group, thus biopsy is advised. The chance of this turning out cancer is less than 5%. And if it turns out cancer, this would be completely treatable.

So nothing to worry about.

Do not feel I can afford phone call. Sorry.

Apologies for any intrusion of those automatic offers for phone calls. These are produced by the website automatically and outside of my control, as mentioned.

You are very welcome.

Transurethral bladder resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) and Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) immunotherapy or other intravesical (bladder instillation) chemotherapies may be used.

Wishing you a speedy resolution and all the very best in life.

Have I done something wrong? Was the information wrong?

Please do not rate negatively if you want the refund as the ratings stay on the site records and affect the standing of the expert.

Keep in mind, I can only give you truthful information as simply telling you only what you wish to hear but what may not necessarily be true would only hurt you.
