Abstract

• The incidence of UTUC has slowly risen over the past 30 years. • Increased use of bladder cancer surveillance regimens and improved abdominal cross-sectional imaging may contribute to the observed stage migration towards more in situ lesions. • Although pathological disease characteristics impact cancer outcomes, certain sociodemographic factors also appear to portend worse prognosis.
