Secondary Malignant Neoplasms in Patients with Bladder- Carcinoma
Urology. 1992 Mar;39(3) :204-206
AbstractAt the University of Pennsylvania and its affiliates, 292 patients with bladder carcinoma treated with a variety of definitive regimens were observed for the incidence of secondary malignancies. The cumulative incidence at fifty-four months, including synchronous primary neoplasms, was 24 percent. Hazard function analysis reveals a relatively constant risk of new neoplasms to be approximately 1.5 percent per year over a period of forty-eight months after diagnosis.
