M. Sathya and P. Chinnaswamy

Bladder cancer is the one of the most common genito urinary tract malignancy and more than 90% of bladder cancer is of urothelial carcinomas that ranks fourth among cancers occurring in males. Although, over 50% of cases are diagnosed by biopsy at an early stage. The prognosis is sometimes difficult to assess because of heterogeneity, multifocality and tumor recurrence. In the present study, among 70 urinary bladder tumor patients, 61 (87%) were of Transitional Cell Carcinoma (TCC) and 9 (13%) of adenocarcinoma. Similarly, in the observed TCC patients, high grade is observed in 44 cases (63%) whereas low grade was in 17 cases (24%). The study also revealed among the TCC, 18 (25%) patients have shown the muscle invasion, 61 (87%) with lamina propria invasion and 18 (25%) patients with lymph vascular space invasion.
