Pathologic prognostic factors Stage Most important Grade Important only in non-muscle invasive TaT1 tumours esp. If carcinoma of the bladder transmurally invades through the bladder wall and into the prostatic stroma the tumor is designated as pT4a If carcinoma of the bladder colonizes the prostatic urethra via in situ spread and then invades the underlying prostatic stroma it is not pT4a but can be considered a separate tumor of the prostatic urethra with a pT2 designation see staging of the prostatic urethra.

Latest news reports from the medical literature videos from the experts and more. The grade lets your doctor know how quickly the cancer might grow and spread while the stage describes its size and whether it has spread beyond the original site. Upper tract urothelial cancers are graded as follows.
Upper tract urothelial cancer UTUC is a subset of urothelial cancer that is found in the renal pelvis of the ureter. Urothelial carcinoma is the most common histologic subtype of bladder cancer and accurate local staging of this tumor is crucial for management. Urothelial carcinomas diagnosed in 1993-2005 in patients aged 18 years and older.
Upper urinary tract urothelial carcinoma is staged using the TNM classification of malignant tumors. Ad Bladder cancer coverage from every angle. The earliest stage cancers are called stage 0 or carcinoma in situ and then range from stages I 1 through IV 4.
Traditionally local staging relied on biopsy. A total of 334480 bladder cancer cases 15105 renal pelvis cancer cases and 10128 ure-teral carcinoma cases were identified. Preoperative TNM is important for treatment planning.
