Paper Abstract

Bladder cancer remains a serious public health problem in many parts of the world with an estimated 300,000 new cases a year. A majority (75%.90%) of these cancers are diagnosed pathologically as transitional cell carcinoma (TCC), except in the regions of bilharzial disease which is often associated with squamous cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder. However, in this presentation we will discuss primarily superficial TCC which constitutes 85°/o of newly diagnosed bladder cancer cases. Superficial bladder cancer includes papillary tumors involving only the mucosa (Ta) or submucosa (Ti) and flat carcinoma in suit (CIS).
