INTRODUCTION. Bladder cancer accounts for % and % of all cancer deaths in men and women, respectively, with greater than 90% of bladder cancers being transitional cell carcinoma in USA.[] High rate of recurrence and inability to define population at risk, monitoring measures such as periodic cystoscopic examination and urine-based diagnostic tests have been studied extensively for.

Feb 1. 54(3) Trias I, Algaba F, Condom E, Español I, Seguí J, Orsola I. Bladder cancer is any of several types of cancer arising from the tissues of the urinary bladder.

It is a disease in which cells grow abnormally and have the potential to spread to other parts of the body. Symptoms include blood in the urine, pain with urination, and low back pain. Risk factors for bladder cancer include smoking, family history, prior radiation therapy, frequent bladder Specialty: Oncology.

Bladder and other urothelial cancers are diseases in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the urothelium.

The bladder is a hollow organ in the lower part of the is shaped like a small balloon and has a muscle wall that allows it to get larger or smaller to store urine made by the are two kidneys, one on each side of the backbone, above the waist. The histopathologic subtypes of bladder cancer included transitional cell carcinoma (TCC), various histologic variants of TCC (tumors with squamous, glandular, or sarcomatoid differentiation and poor - ly differentiated tumors), squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, small cell carcinoma, and undif-ferentiated carcinoma [29].

Immunohistochemical. Other risk factors. Additional risk factors associated with more aggressive forms of bladder cancer include neuropathic bladder and associated indwelling catheters [37,38] and Schistosoma haematobium bladder infections (Bilharzial bladder cancer).[]Urothelial tumors other than TCC include adenocarcinoma, SCC, and metastatic adenocarcinoma.

Her2/neu is an oncogene that plays an important role in the pathogenesis of many cancer types. In bladder carcinoma (BC), the clinical significance of Her2/neu status remains under-investigated and poorly linked to the patients’ clinic-pathological features and survival status.

Thus, the current study was conducted to assess Her2/neu status in a cohort of patients’ in Saudi Arabia, and to Cited by: 7.

To evaluate the diagnostic potential of 23 candidate genes, belonging to a category of tumor-specific antigens known as cancer-testis antigens (CTAs), in transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) patients. The expression of 16 known candidate CTAs and seven testis restricted/selective genes, predominantly expressed in the testis, was evaluated by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain Cited by: 5.

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the clinical value of TuM2-PK as a tumor marker for renal cell carcinoma (RCC), transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder (TCC) and prostate cancer.

The diagnosis of transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder is described and incorporates exophytic and solid lesions which may appear neoplastic at cystoscopy.

The emphasis is on prognostic features related to invasion in flat carcinoma in situ, recurrence and muscle invasion in superficial papillary carcinoma and survival in muscle invasive by: Findings of polypoid lesion from urinary bladder.

We review the main established/proposed factors, both environmental and genetic, associated with bladder cancer etiology and prognosis. Data were extracted from previous reviews and original articles identified from PubMed searches, reference lists, and book chapters Cited by: The most common form of bladder cancer in dogs is a Transitional Cell Carcinoma (TCC).

It is a tumor made up of the epithelial cells that line the bladder wall. It commonly develops in the trigone area (the base of the bladder where the urethra originates), making surgical removal very difficult or impossible.

Transitional bladder carcinoma (BCa) is the fifth-most common cancer and results in significant morbidity and mortality.
