The clinical and morphological features of the course of bladder cancer (BC) were studied in 152 middle-aged, elderly, and senile male (86.9%) and female (13.1%) patients diagnosed with Stage I-IV BC: stage I in 116 (76.3%) patients and Stages II, III, IV in 36 (23.7%). Most patients underwent transurethral resection. Moderately differentiated bladder tumor was observed in 54.6% of patients. Microscopic examination of the tumor revealed an ordered his-tological and cellular structure with minor signs of nuclear atypia. Carcinomas consisted of cells with impaired polarity, which had lost intercellular contacts with large hyperchromatic nuclei. There were commonly mitotic figures, often atypical ones. There were no tumor histologic differ-ences in different age groups (middle-aged, elderly and senile patients)
