The lesions of the urinary bladder are responsible for significant morbidity and mortality. Non neoplastic lesions are more disabling than lethal1. Urinary bladder cancer is the sixth most common cancer worldwide and the second most common malignancy of the genitourinary tract after prostate cancer. Among bladder tumors, urothelial carcinoma is the commonest accounting for 90% of all the primary tumors of the bladder. Cystoscopy is the primary diagnostic tool for the patients with suspected bladder tumor. It allows a direct visualization of the bladder mucosa and taking biopsy from the suspected mucosal lesion. Cystoscopic evaluation and histopathological analysis of biopsy material are the backbone of bladder cancer diagnosis and treatment. Present study is conducted to study histopathological features of various lesions of urinary bladder, frequency of bladder lesions and to correlate clinical details with histopathological findings.
