    First time

    I was diagnosed yesterday with Bladder cancer. Not sure if this is normal but I have no feeling one way or another, as if it was said in passing and it was not about me. I'm not sure what to think or feel. Has this happened to anyone?

    I am sorry your post has not been replied to yet. This thread does not see a lot of action. I am going to move your most to the Kidney and Bladder Cancer thread where other members with this type of cancer may weigh in more.

    I realize our question is more general in nature but in the end you can receive more support from that group in your journey.

    Wishing you all the best,
    Wife to husband with squamous lung cancer stage 3 b
    dx - April 20/14
    tx started May 20/14 - radiation and chemo

    July 8 - PET scan shows tumor almost gone, lymph nodes back to normal
    Married July 19/14

    I'm new to this forum too; it doesn't seem to be active. I was diagnosed with ureter cancer last month - I still repeat it to myself over and over many times a day as I never thought I'd get cancer. No one in my family gets cancer unless they're elderly. I've had one surgery for the biopsy and to put in a stent; the doctor believes the next surgery will be the only treatment I'll need--no chemo or radiation. Does cancer run in your family? My husband had bladder cancer about 18 years ago, just had surgery and that was all. It's not recurred.
