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.
