Why Choose Florida Hospital?
Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) is a type of cancer that attacks the transitional cells known as the urothelial, the internal lining that coats the urinary system. TCC is also recognized as the leading cause of bladder cancer in the United States. If TCC patients go without the proper treatment, the transitional cells of the urinary system such as the bladder, urethra, and ureters may progress into a severe health crisis including death. For the most part, transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) may spread to nearby organs, tissues, lymph nodes and reach other vital components that can disrupt critical functions. Urologists at Florida Hospital are dedicated to exploring risk factors of transitional cell carcinoma (TCC), can determine what type of urinary cancer is present, will order the most reliable tests to screen for bladder cancer, and can devise a treatment plan with a good prognosis. If urinary system problems elevate blood pressure, create intense pain, and cause an obstruction, call 9-1-1 immediately.
