About the disease

Ureteral cancer develops in the ureters, which are the tubes that are responsible for carrying urine from the kidneys to the bladder. Ureteral cancer is a rare type of kidney cancer, with approximately 1000 cases per decade. It is more common in elderly people over 60 years old.

We created survival rate statistics based on various medical sources. The 5-year survival rate for localized cancer that has not spread to other organs is 100%.

If cancer has started to grow but is found only in the ureters, the survival rate is 80%. If the renal pelvis and tissue surrounding the kidneys is affected by a tumor, the survival rate is only 20%. For patients whose cancer has grown outside the renal pelvis, the survival rate is just 5%.

The ureter is part of the urinary tract and cancer of this organ can develop if there is a dysfunction of the kidneys.

According to the Canadian Cancer Society, this type of cancer is in most cases caused by smoking, chronic kidney stones and aristolochic acids, which are found in herbal medications. Chronic kidney disease, if not treated, can also contribute to the development of this disease. People who have had urothelial carcinoma in the past need to be regularly checked by a doctor. Exposure to certain chemicals such as aluminium and textile dye can contribute to the development of this disease, which is why people working with chemicals and metals should be extra cautious. If this cancer is not treated, it can spread to the prostate, uterus and rectum.  

Symptoms

  • Pain while urinating
  • Strange blood clots in urine
  • Burning in uterus
  • Pain in the lower back
  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

Diagnosis

First of all, a doctor will perform a physical examination of your abdomen and genitals to see if there is any abnormal growth. The patient’s health history and whether or not they have previously had kidney disease are also part of the diagnosis. Modern diagnostic methods include:

  • Urinalysis determines whether there is blood in the urine
  • An Endoscopy uses a camera to examine the urinary tract
  • A CT scan makes 3D images of the ureters
  • Cytology studies cells in the ureter and bladder

Treatment

In most cases, ureteral cancer treatment includes surgery. The most effective surgery in this case is tumor excision. Surgery can be radical or partial.

During radical tumor excision, a surgeon removes the affected kidney, ureter and the beginning section of the bladder, where it is connected to the ureter. In rare cases, a surgeon will also need to remove the adrenal gland. If cancer has spread to the lymph nodes, they need to be removed as well. Nevertheless, removal of lymph nodes is a radical measure, which is used only in progressed stages of this disease.

During partial tumor excision, the surgeon removes only the part of the ureter where the tumor has formed. In most cases, a tumor forms in the lower third of the ureter. This type of surgery can be performed in the beginning stages of this cancer. After such surgery, the ureter needs to be reattached to the bladder so that it can function properly in future. In this surgery, the surgeon may also need to remove healthy parts surrounding the tumor, in order to reconnect the ureter in the right way.

In some cases, the surgeon may perform endoscopic surgery instead of opting for tumor excision. The surgeon inserts an endoscope into the kidney and then passes it along to the ureter, where it can resect the tumor. This type of excision is used only in the last stages of this cancer or when the patient has only one functioning kidney. 

So, many effective and well-researched treatment methods exist that can save your life, regardless of the stage of your disease. The earlier a diagnosis is performed, the bigger the chances are for survival.
