Aim and Introduction: Urinary bladder lesions, non-neoplastic and neoplastic, are collectively responsible for significant morbidity and mortality throughout the world. The present study aimed to study the histopathology of various lesions of the bladder through cystoscopic biopsies.
Material and Methods: The present prospective study aimed to study the histopathology of various lesions of the urinary bladder through cystoscopic biopsies. All patients who visited Urology Outpatients Department for haematuria and dysuria were subjected to cystoscopy.
Results: Histopathological examinations revealed an equal share of non neoplastic lesions and neoplastic lesions. Amongst the non neoplastic lesions, 84% were inflammatory lesions. Urothelial tumours (96%) formed the bulk amongst neoplastic lesions.
Conclusion: This article has stressed upon the importance of histopathological examinations in evaluating bladder pathologies.
