Are most bladder tumors cancer?

2 small bladder tumors were found on my recent cystoscopy. I am scheduled to have them biopsied/removed in 2 weeks. Dr. said he was concerned they may be beginning of cancer. Are most bladder tumors cancer?
My history:
Female - 52
never smoked
previous thyroid cancer stage1 (thyroidectomy - no further treatment required)

Every time I try to search bladder tumors online it comes up as bladder cancer. The only thing I could find that says anything about benign tumors is that they are less often benign and more often cancer. Guess I'm just looking for more information.
