Abstract

1. Abstract
1.1. Introduction: According to literature data regarding muscle- invasive bladder cancers (MIBC), women have a more advanced stage at diagnosis and worse prognosis than men. We performed a retrospective, population-based, analytic study on MIBC using data from a cancer registry in a French department, to compare patients, tumors, treatments, and overall and specific survival data in women versus men.
