Malignant bladder tumours originate from the lining of the bladder (the urothelium) and are also known as urothelial carcinomas. The urothelium lines the bladder, the ureters, the renal pelvis, and the calyces.
96% of the urothelium is located in the urinary bladder. The most common urothelial carcinomas grow on the surface, but they can grow in the bladder wall, and present themselves as highly aggressive tumours. Urothelial carcinomas often appear in the entire urinary duct but most commonly in the urinary bladder. The main risk factors include smoking and prolonged exposure to solvents. Blood in the urine may also be an indicator of a bladder tumour.
