All Bladder Masses Cancerous
The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
Yes: A CT scan is an excellent way of assessing the kidney for tumors, abscesses and other issues. A blockage of the ureter also will be evident, as can occur with a stone or tumor.

Two small soft tissue masses found in my nasopharynx. what is the chance they are cancer given that my brother has been diagnosed for NPC recently?

Your doc should have been able to look at these on CT scan or on nasopharyngoscope and give you a better read. A good look is better than any risk factor analysis.... ...Read more
