The tumor was behind her bladder and grew into it. They removed
It along with approx 20-30% of her bladder. They said it was most probably rhabdomiosarcoma and planned out chemo. But then final labs came back not cancer. They were so sure it was cancer due to how the tumor looked, that it was close to 6mm, and the way it invaded her bladder. Now I'm scared that it really was cancer and they made a mistake.

Anyone have any experience with this? Oh, she's 9 and a half years old.
