This Special Issue is about bladder cancer. Bladder cancer has become the ninth most common cancer worldwide, and the sixth most common malignancy in the United States, according to an epidemiologic statistics report published in 2017. Although many tumor markers associated with the development of bladder cancer have been widely reported, the rates of mortality and recurrence of bladder cancer are still high. Bladder cancer usually presents at an early stage, with most patients presenting with Tis or T1 disease and, thus, high recurrence rates. At present, different recurrence rates are observed according to the pathological staging and tumor grading. The reasons for this increase in recurrence, and tumor biology in particular, are poorly understood. Treatment of bladder cancer has evolved in recent years, with several new treatment techniques that lead to improvements in uro-oncology. This Special Issue mainly aims to discuss a collection of basic research and clinical treatments for the early detection, early diagnosis and early treatment of bladder cancer.
Here, we welcome papers outlining tumor biology, diagnostics, and treatment modalities of bladder cancer.
