My journey starts today

I had blood in my urine 3 months ago so went to emergency department of hospital. They did blood tests, found nothing, urine cleared up – they booked me in for cystoscopy in a months time. 3 weeks later more blood so went back to hospital – doctor told me was “probably bladder cancer” but it is typically “very slow growing so no harm in waiting a week to check” I had an MRI on that day – after waiting 8 hours, I was told no tumors detected and bleeding was enlarged prostate – I was relieved. A week later I went in for cystoscopy even though was convinced there was no need. As I watched the camera go in live on the screen I saw the smooth bladder wall and then strange branch like growths. The doctor says “That’s a tumour”. This happened about 5 hours ago so I am still processing things. Hopefully surgery will happen next week and I will take it from there. I am scared and not convinced that doctors know what they are doing.
