I am confused about your treatment or what sounds like lack of treatment with chemotherapy. Also, there is a DNA blood test by Natera that can be used instead of Cystoscopy, Don't understand why anybody would want to go through that procedure instead instead of a simple blood test.

Huh...we'll, that's the treatment that this urologist is recommending. It's not something I "want". Maybe the reason why they do these procedures is because they get paid for them. My Dad's PC Doctor told him he doesn't like this particular group of Doctors because they tend to do unnecessary treatments just to get paid. He also said that typically that's how the Urology business operates. That does not sound good for anyone.

Well I was curious about that blood test for detecting bladder cancer and I don't see anything on the American Cancer Society website or Mayo Clinic even hinting it exists.
