Dr. Moez Khorsandi answered:

Do depression and other emotional problems increase the risk of getting bladder cancer?

No

Cancer
Emotional problems do not increase the rate of bladder cancer. Bladder cancer is generally caused by carcinogens. Risk factors include smoking, dyes, chemicals, and benzene compounds. Although emotional problems may affect bladder symptoms such as urinary frequency, it does not increase your chances of developing bladder cancer.

urine test checks for bladder Cancer or other problems?

Can be both

Bladder_cancer
Many tests can be run on urine, although the selection is not as vast as blood testing. The basic test is called a urinalysis or UA. A urine cytology is a separate test where a pathologist evaluates the urine for cancer cells. Please ask your doctor more about the testing.

Could a "full" bladder on CT with contrast of abdomen & pelvis be confused or misread as bladder cancer/tumor/problems??

Probably Not

Cancer
Part of the intent of using contrast on a CT scan of the pelvis is to "fill the bladder" this allows us to see if there is thickening of the bladder walls, or filling abnormalities among other things. It's unlikely that a full bladder represents problems, unless the problem is one of emptying the bladder. Then a reason must be sought if the bladder doesn't empty normally.

I am so sorry that this has happened to your husband. The important issues are: How alert your husband is, in other words, is he neurologically intact, and if he has stable vital signs, such as his pulse and blood pressure, or does he need medications to support his heart function. You can ask his doctor what he thinks about your husbands neurologic and cardiac function. I will wish the best for your husband.

What are the types of bladder cancer?

Many

Cancer
Most "bladder cancer" in the US refers to urothelial carcinoma (previously called transitional cell carcinoma). This accounts for 90% of "bladder cancer". Squamous cell and adenocarcinoma are more rare types acounting for 8% or so. These are associated with chronic inflammation/irritation or genetic predisposition. There is conflicting evidence if any of the above types are worse than the others.

Dr. Moez Khorsandi answered:

How is bladder cancer treated?

Surgery or Radiation

Cancer
The 2 mainstay forms of muscle invasive bladder cancer treatment includes radical surgery or radiation with chemotherapy. If there is no muscle invasion, one can be treated with a bladder medicine called BCG. The actual treatment depends on multiple factors including the pathology report, type of cancer, the size of the lesion, number of lesions present, and spread of disease.
