Need cystoscopy ...: I assumed the reason for having CT was blood in urine or bacterial urinary tract infection. So, thus far, you need a direct look at the whole interior of the bladder to make sure this tiny lesion of few mm is a tumor or a false image (this is possible). For a 23-y-o man, a malignant lesion is not highm but still possible; I have seen a low-grade malignant tumor in a man as young as 18 yrs old.
