What Does a Bladder Tumor Look Like?

Many people in the bladder cancer community have described coming face to face with their bladder tumor in the exam room during a cystoscopy.

One survivor described the moment by saying, "The first glimpse I had of a tumor of mine, I was struck by how pretty it was. I always imagined a tumor to be ugly. This one looked like a sea anemone..." Another survivor wrote about not being able to look at the screen until the scope is over.
