Bladder Cancer (PUNLMP) Young Age

I have been diagnosed with low grade bladder cancer at the age of 23.  I am concerned because I know this is unusually young.  I also have never smoked or been exposed to any risk factors.  Cancer at a young at does run in my family.  My grandma had breast cancer at 26.  Any advise n what caused this or most importantly reoccurrence?

I myself just found out that I have a bladder tumor.  Even though no biopsy has been done yet the doctor called it cancer.
Scheduled for surgery in one month.
Have been having frequency of urinating for years.
I am scared that it maybe very serious or wide spread since so much time has passed since I first started seeing symptoms.
I not as young as you but still relatively young for bladder cancer - 39 years old.  
What I have read - like all cancers - there is definite cause for the cancer.  
If you are a smoker your chances are greater plus if you work in a industrial setting where you are exposed to certain chemicals than your chances also increase.
I am scared.  
I wish you the best and my prayers are with you.
