Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bladder cancer is a frequent cancer type with a high degree of diversity regarding its prognosis and treatment modalities. The incidence of bladder cancer has been almost unaltered over the past decades despite the focus on smoking and work enviromental improvements. Thus, the reduction in these factors has been upweighted by an increasing life expectancy in the Western World. During the last decade, previous stagnation in the development of new treatment modalities has changed into an explosion of new local and systemic treatments. Immuotherapy showed promising results when introduced, but the initial enthusiasm was quickly changed to a more realistic expectation of a game changer in just a minority of patients; however, this fact has paved the way for more individualized tailor-made treametments. We are on the verge of a new future for bladder cancer treatments. With this Special Issue, we hope to focus on an up-to-date mapping of the current status of bladder cancer and highlight new promising fields of diagnostics, treatments, and follow-ups.
