A Large Perivesical Mass in a Patient with the History of Bladder Cancer; Does it always Mean a Tumor Extension?
A man with a history of urothelial carcinoma is presented here. According to investigations, he had bilateral hydronephrosis due to the pressure effect of a large mass in his bladder. The patient underwent surgical procedure including mass resection and ureter reimplantation. The final pathology report was only fat necrosis.
