Most likely the tumour is a Transitional cell tumour of urinary bladder - all the rest are rare, and depending on the nature of the histopathology report, some patients will need to have BCG instilled into the bladder once a week for 6 weeks, and then re-assess the situation with check cystoscopy after 3 months.
Hope this has been of use to you. if you need further clarifications, do please upload the pathology report.
