Primary urethral carcinoma in females: an epidemiologic study on demographical factors, histological types, tumour stage and survival
World Journal of Urology, 05/30/2012
Derksen JW et al. – Female primary urethral carcinoma is a rare condition, and the majority of patients were aged above 65 years. Almost half of patients have advanced disease upon diagnosis. TNM stage and histological type of disease are the most determining factors for survival. Extended surgery with or without radiotherapy seems to be the most favourable treatment. Awareness and early diagnosis are important to improve survival.
