Pretty sure doctor diagnosed before biopsy which is Wednesday of next week.  3 utis in 3 months bloating and up all night at times peeing its like a faucet pee little off and up again.  Got ultrasound mass or debris in lower bladder 2.4 cm, mass anterior and superior to bladder 5.1 cm.  3rd time to the hospital I go.  I said I'm not leaving without answers or more tests CT  goes to Doctor cystectomy yesterday, yep mass above bladder growing into bladder.  I'm so afraid, am I gonna die too much negativity I've been reading on internet nothing in bloodwork so far except inflammation and infection.  Help biopsy on Wednesday:)

Please give my wife a call. I sent you a private message with the number. Your case sounds exactly like the way my wife's started. UTI's that wouldn't clear up, then CT scan and cytoscopy to confirm a 5 cm tumor in dome of bladder. She had the dome of her bladder removed at UPMC Shadyside 2+ years ago.

She would love to talk to you.

I get your fear.

 10 cm growth, growing into the dome of my bladder. Ultrasounds, cystoscopys, CAT/MRIS scans, confirmed the size and location, and lack of spread. Before i knew it, i had had the dome of bladder removed, a few weeks of (frankly not pleasant) catheter life, and then went through a series of UTIs while the remaining baldder stretched out. 

9 month on i'm fine (finegrs crossed) with no sign of cancer coming back.

So be scared i and my wife sure were, but be optimistic. There is plenty of reason for it.
