A mass found on the inside of the bladder is suspicious for cancer.  There are many non-cancerous causes as well, such as polyp, infection, scarring, anatomical abnormalities, amongst others.  But, most important, is to make sure to find out if it is cancer, therefore, these growths are removed with a small camera scope that goes into the bladder.  Then the pathologist can review the tissue removed and render a diagnosis.  This usually takes about a week to get the result after surgery.
