  • Hematuria , dysuria and suprapubic pain are general symptoms of patients. Radical surgery is regarded the most frequent treatment option, but it is not satisfactory in 5-year survival rates [ 1 ].[omicsgroup.org]
Macroscopic Hematuria
  • hematuria, urodynia, abdomen pain or fever.[omicsgroup.org]
  • CASE REPORT A 57-year-old male patient presented with a six-month history of painless intermittent macroscopic hematuria without coagula. The patient was a smoker and an alcoholic (Child B alcoholic liver cirrhosis).[scielo.br]
  • Visible blood in the urine is referred to as gross, or macroscopic, hematuria. Bladder cancer often causes no symptoms until it reaches an advanced stage that is difficult to cure.[emedicinehealth.com]
Burning Micturition
Prostatic Nodule
  • On initial evaluation for his penile discharge, he was found to have a right prostatic nodule on physical examination with a normal prostate specific antigen level of 1.5 ng/mL.[jmedicalcasereports.com]


  • Finally, a thorough clinical workup is required to rule out another primary adenocarcinoma that may have metastasized. Urachal adenocarcinoma can show immunoreactivity for both CK20 and CK7, in addition to CDX2.[path.upmc.edu]
  • Further workup included colonoscopy showing multiple adenomatous polyps were identified without invasive malignancy and cystoscopic evaluations. Cystoscopy revealed a massive amount of mucoid material within the bladder associated with a mass.[jmedicalcasereports.com]
  • Cystoscopy, cytology, and biopsy when necessary are the principal diagnostic tests (see Workup ).[emedicine.medscape.com]
Liver Biopsy
  • Because of the rarity of primary bladder tumors with these histological features, rigid rectosigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, upper digestive endoscopy, pelvis resonance and laparoscopy together with liver biopsy were sequentially performed with the aim of[scielo.br]
Squamous Metaplasia of the Bladder
  • There is only one previously reported case of urothelial carcinoma with associated squamous metaplasia of the bladder occurring in a spina bifida patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Complete response was achieved at the end of this treatment. Today the patient is free of local or systemic disease. FOLFOX4 regimen may be a treatment option for primary adenocarcinoma of the bladder.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment and prognosis Due to their extravesical location, urachal carcinomas present very late and thus carry a poor prognosis. Radical cystectomy is considered the treatment of choice.[radiopaedia.org]


  • Although the prognosis of T4 bladder adenocarcinomas has been reported to be quite poor in comparison with that of transitional cell carcinomas, the postoperative prognosis of T4 rectal adenocarcinomas has been reported to be more favorable and such tumors[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
