ureteral neoplasms

Summary

Summary: Cancer or tumors of the URETER. Hematuria, which occurs in 75% of patients with ureteral carcinoma, is the most common presenting symptom. The most common site for the occurrence of a ureteral tumor is in the lower third of the URETER, with a lesser incidence higher up.
