Thank you for posting your query.

I see no reason for anybody to wait to get his bladder tumor or polyp removed. There is a good chance that nothing adverse is going to happen with this wait but still at the end of the day why should you take that chance.

I will suggest that you see another urologist and get it removed at earlier date.

Hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
