      I would go right away.  I had blood in my urine also and it was a bladder cancer.  They did not catch it with a urine test.  I had a cystoscopic exam .  This way they can rule it out or confirm if you need more done.  I was lucky I persisted in them testing as I should not have been bleeding.  No pain so I did not think it would be from the urethra.  I thought it was from the vagina...

            I was wondering how often you had chemo treatments over the 6 months.?  I am sorry it has returned for you.  I have my first MRI to see how my chem of four treatments has worked to hold it at bay or kill any existing cells.  My surgery was removing 1/3 of my bladder and the tube of course, and many lymph glands.  I had all clear margins after the surgery. yes, it is too bad we are such a rare cas...
