Has anyone seen what bladder cancer looks like on an ultrasound?

My 11yr old girl has been told that she has bladder cancer, but the only thing the vet did to diagnose this was look at the mass with an ancient ultrasound machine...I had her take a pic of the ultrasound machine, and to me all I see is a round blob in the middle of her bladder.... the vet told me actually that the blob in the middle of the picture is attached to a stalk that is attached to the side of the bladder, which I could not see this in the picture she sent me. Is this what you all have seen in your diagnosis? A friend of mine said that it possibly could be a bladder stone, which has never been discussed..... Love to hear how this diagnosis came to all, and what you saw at the beginning....She has now been on Piroxicam

My 12 yr old Jack Russell, Roxi was diagnosed with bladder cancer in May. Our vet, who I use to work with at the clinic, showed me the mass on the ultrasound which does kinda look like a blob on the screen.  She also took a urine sample and looked at it under the microscope and was able to see the cancer cells.  I hope this is some help to you.  I know how hard this is.  I've been devistated since I got the diagnosis about Roxi.  She has been taking Medicam since May but now she is leaking urine constantly and our vet is putting her on the Piroxicam tomorrow to see if that will help.  Good luck to you and your fur baby.

Piroxicam can be hard on the stomach, to prevent bleeding ulcers my Vet percribed Misoprostal Besides ultrasound of the bladder my Vet Also did the BRAF test to diagnose.                                                                                              

(The CADET BRAF Mutation Detection Assay has been designed specifically to identify tumor cells carrying the BRAFmutation, which is present in 85% of all TCC/UC cases. The test can detect as few as just 10 mutant bearing cells in a urine sample and has been detecting cases up to four months (or longer) before any clinical signs associated with the cancer become evident.)
