The final diagnosis was determined individually for each patient. The decision was based on history, physical examination, urinary tract radiological and endoscopy findings and also the pathological reports relating to biopsy or resection specimens. Based on their final diagnosis, each patient was assigned to one of the seven final diagnosis categories. For statistical purposes these categories were split into non-life threatening (NLT) or life threatening (LT) groups. BPE, benign prostate enlargement; MI muscle invasive; n, number; NMI, non-muscle invasive; TCC transitional cell carcinoma; UC, urothelial cancer; UTI, urinary tract infection.
