Have any of you had bladder cancer/bladder cancer scares?

I’m only 26, but I’ve had chronic UTI’s my whole life and I was a heavy smoker for about 8 years. Now over the last year I’ve had 7 urine tests in a row come back with a lot of blood and pain/symptoms of UTI without actual infection on the cultures, and ultrasound showed no kidney stones.

I’ve been waiting months to see a urologist. The primary care doc who first caught the blood is really concerned and told me it might be cancer twice at my appointment yesterday and I’m definitely worried. Anyone else have situations like this or know someone who did?
