Answer

Answer

In the United States, squamous cell carcinoma constitutes around 2%-5% of all urinary bladder carcinomas. [4, 5, 6, 7] Approximately 90%-95% of bladder tumors are urothelial carcinomas. [7] The male-to-female incidence ratio is 1:2; this stands in contrast to urothelial carcinoma, which predominantly affects males.
