The first question is whether or not this was read as malignant or not. If it was malignant , the second question would be how the specimen was collected. If this was taken from a urine cytology, these cells may have come from other places. While 90% of bladder tumors are of a different cell type, it is possible to have such rare cases. It is also possible that the cells came from the urethra (the final tube through which urine exits the body). The management would of course vary where the cells came from. Discuss the findings with your doctor and come up with an acceptable plan of management. Stay positive.
