I think for right now we all seem to be happy with his Uro. From what I’ve read and been told even in this post, he is doing exactly what he should. For now.
This will definitely happen if I think the Uro is dragging on anything.

Welcome. There are so many variables there are simply no easy answers. Plus, everyone is different on how ther body reacts. It may even be a time for a set of fresh eyes with a second opinion. Just make sure it is a bladder specialty center/teaching facility like an MD Anderson etc.

Sorry that I was not able to respond promptly. Believe it or not. We had a Board meeting for the American Bladder Cancer Society this afternoon.
Afraid that no one can really answer your question. Anything abnormal in the bladder needs to be examined. Both irritation and bladder cancer can look different depending on the location and type. Wish I could be of more help, but this is why they do biopsies.

If I’m if I may ask one more quick question?
With my dads irritation last time, it was shown and described as a small red patch.
This time it’s described as small bumps. Is this indicative of cancer returning or can this too be irritation?
I know nobody can say for certain, or matter of factly. Just curious of your response based off your personal journey and education from so many others journeys here. Obviously from anyone, would be appreciated.
