In the Western world the vast majority of bladder cancers are urothelial (transitional cell) carcinomas. In addition, flat CIS of the bladder requires aggressive management from its initial diagnosis in order to prevent invasive malignancy. The grading and staging of these tumors is crucial in the adequate management of 21 22 Charles Jameson patients with these malignancies. This necessitates both essential pathological and radiological input from the tumor’s initial diagnosis. The future of bladder cancer diagnosis requires differentiating those low grade nonaggressive tumors, which may not even recur once treated, from the aggressive, high grade tumors and high grade flat CIS.

4 This shows a bladder containing a urothelial carcinoma (T) that is diffusely infiltrating and thickening the bladder wall (endophytic growth pattern). This should be readily visible with cross-sectional imaging. 6 Flat carcinoma in situ (CIS). Full thickness atypia with dyscohesive cells (arrows) falling away from the surface are typical. There is no invasion into lamina propria (LP). 7 A urothelial carcinoma (T) arising in a bladder diverticulum (D). It is easy for a cystoscopist to miss such a tumor if the neck (N) is narrow.

At diagnosis, approximately 70% of tumors will be superficial and low grade in nature. Of these, approximately 85% will remain superficial in nature although many are likely to recur. Treatment schedules and consequent follow-up schedules are based not only on the stage and grade at the time of diagnosis but also on the likelihood of recurrence and progression. 29 30 Sarb Sandhu and Alan Thompson REFERENCES 1.
