In total, about 2100 new cases are estimated each year in our country. Bladder cancer is a neoplastic disease that results from uncontrolled growth of the cells that make up the bladder. There are several types of bladder cancer, the most common being, in more than 90% of patients, urothelial carcinoma. “About 75% of patients have a superficial tumor at the time of diagnosis, that is, without invasion of the bladder wall”, explains Cátia Faustino, oncologist at IPO-Porto and member of the board of directors of the Portuguese Society of Oncology.
