Forum Name: Bladder Cancer

Question: Lab results: Fish-Bladder Cancer

 mskyy22 - Fri Jul 23, 2010 12:32 pm

I was sent to Duke Health Center two months ago. I was having pains and my urine smelled different. They took a sample of my urine and scheduled a follow up visit, which is next week. I registered to there online health portable and was able to view the lab results. The first lab was my urinalysis that stated my WBC was 6 and Squamous Epithelial cell is 5...the next lab stated Fish-Bladder Cancer and said refer to image but there was no image that I could see. Can someone tell me what this means.

User avatar Hello,I guess you got it all wrong! FISH (UroVysion assay) UroVysion is a fluorescence in situ hybridization assay that was developed for the detection of bladder cancer in urine specimens.It detects chromosomal abnormalities in cells suspected for from the urinary bladder in voided urine specimens.Those with gross bleeding in urine,or microscopic hematuria may be subjected to this test for diagnosis.So do not worry and come to conclusions.
