abstract

  • There appears to be no evidence of a difference in cancer specific survival or overall survival between patients with squamous cell carcinoma and those with squamous differentiation treated with radical cystectomy and pelvic lymph node dissection. Patients with squamous differentiation and tumor metastases to pelvic lymph nodes should be followed more closely, and adjuvant treatment should be considered to improve survival. Wide surgical resection is critical to achieve local tumor control and improve survival in patients with squamous cell carcinoma.
