Abstract

This chapter will deal with an overview of the pathology of bladder tumors. Bladder tumors are morphologically heterogeneous, but most bladder tumors are urothelial neoplasm. Urothelial carcinoma can be classified into two categories-invasive urothelial carcinoma and noninvasive papillary urothelial carcinoma. Nonurothelial epithelial neoplasms such as squamous cell carcinoma or adenocarcinoma can also be developed. Various benign to malignant mesenchymal tumors are rarely occurred in the urinary bladder. The most recent classification system is 2016 WHO classification of tumors of urinary tract, and this classification is used in this chapter.
