What kind of meds did he take that would cause you to suspect a ink to bladder cancer? Was he on hormone therapy or chemotherapy?
Your question really caught my attention. I recently had an episode of bright red blook in my urine, and I'm now scheduled for a cystoscopy to have a look inside the bladder and an ultrasound of the kidneys. Bladder cancer is one of many possibilities. What symptoms led to your father's diagnosis? How did it happen to get detected early? I would appreciate it if you would add that additional information, because it's weighing heavily on my mind right now. Thanks.
