Urinary bladder cancer (BCa) accounts for about 7% of all new cancers in the United States with 81,190 estimated new cases and 17,240 deaths in 2018. Approximately 75% of the new diagnoses BCa will be non-muscle-invasive BCa (NMIBC) affected by recurrence and progression rates of approximately 60% and 20%, respectively. Several unmet questions have been raised in the urological community regarding BCa. In this series on BCa we collected a series of articles treating some of the most important issue for the urological community.
