“I got an appointment with my urogynecologist and she found a giant tumor. I had an MRI the next day and a phone call that night saying, ‘You’re not going anywhere, you’re not doing anything, you’re going straight to the hospital.
The artist was working on a large red canvas at the time she saw her urogynecologist, and felt that she somehow predicted the terrible news she was going to receive.
WHAT IS BLADDER CANCER?
Bladder cancer is caused by a tumor that develops in the lining of the bladder or in the muscle of the organ.
Around 10,200 new cases are diagnosed in the UK each year and 81,400 people in the US, according to the figures.
It is the 10th most common cancer in the UK, but slightly more prevalent in the US, accounting for about three percent of all cases.
Cancer is more common in men and has a 10-year survival rate of about 50 percent. About half of the cases are considered preventable.
Symptoms of the disease include blood in the urine, the need to urinate more often or urgently than normal, and pelvic pain.
However, unexpected weight loss and swelling of the legs can also be signs of the deadly disease.
Smoking and being exposed to chemicals in plastics and paints at work can increase your risk of getting bladder cancer.
Treatment varies depending on how advanced the cancer is and can include surgery, radiation therapy, or chemotherapy.

After returning home from the MRI, she walked over to the painting to inspect it.
“ It looked finished, but it wasn’t, I could paint more on it, paint on it, ” she said. “I was wondering what it was, looking at it, for about two hours.”
Shortly after Miss Emin heard the news, she suffered from a very aggressive squamous cell cancer, which surgeons feared would kill her within months if it spread to her lymph nodes.
As a result, the decision was made to remove not only her bladder but also her uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, lymph nodes, urethra, and part of her colon and vagina.
Before the surgery, Ms. Emin said, she stayed up for 24 hours with her lawyer rewriting her will before emailing 70 friends with the news of her cancer and instructing them: ‘Don’t contact me.’
But now, after a six and a half hour operation performed by 12 surgeons in July, she is in remission.
She has been left with a stoma bag as a result of having ‘half my body cut off’ and is still struggling to find the energy to paint.
In another candid interview with The Times, Ms. Emin admitted that if she had received the diagnosis last year, she “probably would have gotten over me.”
But, she said, she was now happy to finally talk about the disease, as it would prevent people from assuming she only had a hangover when she was not feeling well for events.

Ms. Emin had suffered frequent bladder infections as a result of having to self-catheterize since doctors discovered that her bladder had “exploded and stopped working” when she was in hospital for appendicitis five years ago.
However, she decided to seek help from a Harley Street urologist in June after finding her catheters stained with blood and experiencing pain that felt “really bad.”
An MRI detected the growth and he underwent dramatic surgery a month later, he told The Times.
After the diagnosis, Miss Emin joked: ‘I told the doctors:’ Then I am going to lose a lot of weight and I am going to have a very tight vagina, and this is bad? ‘On the surgery, she added:’ I managed to keep my whole clit. It’s not that it’s working.
“ But they had to cut one entire side of the vaginal wall and sew it back together, so it’s really sealed. ”
She said she hoped it wasn’t permanent, but that it would require a series of therapies. Despite her optimistic attitude to her ordeal, Miss Emin admitted, “If it had been a year ago, she probably would have gotten over me anyway, because I was so depressed.”
She added that while on the road to recovery, she still hadn’t been able to do what she loves the most: paint.
Miss Emin told The Times that it had been a relief for her not to have children, explaining: ‘There was a big problem that she didn’t have to face, right? I didn’t have to look my kids in the face and say, ‘Mom could be dying.’
In a separate interview, with the art website Artnet, she said: ‘Yesterday, I was crying because I wanted to paint and I didn’t have the energy to do it.
The artist said that after her recovery she hoped to find love.
When asked about her future ambitions, she said: ‘Well, it’s very different than it was before.
‘Spending Christmas would be a good idea. I would like to be with someone who really loves me for who I am. But they would also have to really love my art. ‘

Miss Emin said: ‘I can feel more than ever that love is allowed. At my current age, love is a completely different dimension and level of understanding. I don’t want children, I don’t want all the things you might unconsciously want when you’re young, I just want love.
And all the love I can have I want him to suffocate me, I want him to devour me. And I think it’s okay. ‘
