Answer

In the United States, 90% of bladder cancers are TCC, 5% are SCC, and 2% are adenocarcinoma. Grades 1, 2, and 3 refer to well, moderately, and poorly differentiated microscopic classifications, respectively. Forty percent of newly diagnosed bladder cancers are high grade, and up to half of these are stage T2 or higher. [8, 9]
