Are all bladder masses cancerous?

In brief: No

There are several types of bladder masses but not all are cancerous.
The definitive test to determine if the lesion is cancer is a biopsy. All bladder masses identified need to be biopsied and examined to determine if is malignant or benign.

In brief: Bladder Mass

Many bladder masses are tumorous and represent cancerous growths, but some are related to chronic infection.
Your urologist is in the best position to examine you and provide a definitive diagnosis.
