My hubby had blood in his urine. He had an MRI and biopsy, and was diagnosed with urethral adenocarcinoma. He had 1/3 of his bladder removed. He is finishing final round of 6 rounds of chemotherapy; possible follow up with radiation. Eleven years ago he had prostate cancer surgery. It had spread and nerves and lodes had to be removed. He received radiation.

Fortunately, I had an MRI of my right hip and a mass was detected. Urethral cancer is a very rare form of cancer. I didn't even meet the screening criteria from my doctor. After getting the results, my doctor gave me a referral to the urologists, where a biopsy was performed and a diagnosis was made.
