Urothelial carcinoma is a malignant neoplasm resulting from transitional epithelium, occurring mainly in the urinary bladder, renal pelves or ureters; frequently papillary. These carcinomas are classified according to the degree of anaplasia. Urothelial cell carcinoma (UCC) is a type of cancer that normally occurs in the urinary system: urinary bladder, kidney and accessory organs. It is the most common type of bladder, ureter, urethra, and urachus cancer. Urothelial cell carcinoma is also known as transitional cell carcinoma. Bladder transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) is the most common tumor of the entire urinary system and TCC is the most common primary neoplasm of the urinary bladder. Cancer of the ureter may not have symptoms in the early stages of the disease. However, symptoms may appear as the cancer grows. These include: persistent back pain, blood in the urine, painful or frequent urination, fatigue unexplained weight loss. These symptoms are associated with malignant cancer of the ureter and other health conditions.
The treatment of Urothelial carcinoma involves surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The tests to diagnose Urothelial carcinoma includes Urine tests, Ureteroscopy, Intravenous pyelogram (IVP), Retrograde pyelography, CT scan, MRI scan and Chest X-ray. While the treatment with surgery include open surgery, laparoscopic surgery and percutaneous endoscopic surgery. Chemotherapy treatment usually involves the treatment with a combination of drugs. The combinations includes: gemcitabine and cisplatin, gemcitabine and carboplatin as well as methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin and cisplatin. Radiotherapy is not frequently used for transitional cell carcinoma of the kidney or ureter. Patient may have radiotherapy to the area of the ureter or kidney if patients are not fit enough to have an operation or cancer has spread into surrounding tissue.
