Post Kidney Removal - Urine, Voided Results
My husband had to have his kidney removed due to renal cancer about 10 months ago. His Cytopathology Report has just returned with a diagnosis: Urine, Voided: Few atypical urothelial cells; squamous sells and hemosiderin; urothelial neoplasm cannot be excluded. What does this mean? Should we be worried?
He needs to have a cystoscopy as there may be concern of early bladder cancer cells. This is unrelated to the kidney issue and to the removal of the kidney.
