What Does Carcinoma in Situ of the Bladder Mean?

Q:

I was found to have carcinoma in situ of the bladder in annul community health screening. Is it a serious disease?

A:

Carcinoma in situ (CIS) is a general term which refers to a cancer that is confined to the cells in which it initially grew and that has not moved to any nearby tissues. Carcinoma in situ of the bladder presents itself as a rash-like or flat growth on the bladder lining. It may be present alone, and it can also be detected with papillary tumors.

Bladder CIS is a type of non-invasive cancer, but you still have to beware of it, for it can develop into an invasive disease. Bladder CIS is considered as high-grade bladder cancer, so you must take prompt diagnosis and treatment.
