Abstract

Objective: To study the clinicopathological characteristics of urological malignancies.
Patients and Method: Newly diagnosed patients with urological malignancies in the year 2009 in a single urological unit of a tertiary referral centre were included in this retrospective study.
Results: During the study period there were 35 patients with carcinoma of the bladder; 17 patients with carcinoma of the prostate; 9 patients with renal malignancy; 1 patient with synchronous transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder and upper urinary tract; 1 patient with seminoma of the testis. Median age of the patients with primary bladder carcinoma was 65 years (range 46-82 years). Majority of the patients with primary bladder cancer were males (3.1:1) and had non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (72.7%). All patients with primary bladder cancer except one had transitional cell carcinoma (97%). Median age of the patients with carcinoma of the prostate was 70 years (range 60-81 years). All patients with carcinoma of the prostate had advanced disease at presentation. Median age of the patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) was 65 years (range 53-72 years). There is a 1.3:1 predominance of men over women. 85% of renal cell carcinomas were conventional renal cell carcinomas.
Conclusion: Multicentre long-term studies are required to ascertain the actual clinicopathological characteristics of urological malignancies.
