Mural thickening with endophytic mass (arrows) along the anterior wall of the urinary bladder. It has a nodular inner margin and measures about 3.0 x 5.5 cm in its maximum axial diameters.
No CT evidence of exophytic components or local invasion of the nearby organs.
Bladder cancer typically occurs in men aged 50–70 years.
Most (around 90%) of bladder cancers are transitional cell carcinoma (TCC).
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) represents about 10% of bladder carcinomas, and is strongly related to chronic infection, particularly schistosomiasis.
In this case cystoscopy was recommended and biopsy revealed low grade TCC.
