Tumor-Infiltrated Myeloid Cells and Prostaglandin Catabolism in Human Bladder Cancer


The purpose of this study is to learn how bladder cancer tumors develop and progress within the bladder. Currently, there is not a clear understanding of how bladder cancer tumors form and how they interact with the normal tissues in the ladder. There will be several tests performed on the section of tissue collected to look at the chemical changes taking place with the bladder.
