Abstract: Introduction: Lesions arising from urinary bladder either non-neoplastic or neoplastic pose a major threat leading to significant morbidity and mortality all over the world. Adequate management warrants accurate diagnosis utilizing various procedures including cystoscopy and transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT). Urinary bladder cancer is sixth most common cancer worldwide and encompasses a diverse array of neoplasms with high incidence in elderly males. The current study aims to analyze the histopathology of various lesions of the bladder through different modalities of biopsies like cystoscopic biopsies, TURBT and cystectomy specimens. Methods: This is a 2 year retrospective study of all consecutive biopsies assessed in the Department of Pathology, BJ Medical College, Ahmedabad, between 1st September 2020 to 30th September 2022. All the urinary bladder biopsies received in the department are included in the study. Results: Out of the 89 bladder biopsies, 54 were cystoscopic biopsies followed by 28 TURBT specimen. In our study, the share of neoplastic lesions is significantly higher amounting to 79 cases mostly affecting the male patients in the age group of 60-75 years. Urothelial tumours have the largest proportion amongst the neoplastic lesions. Conclusion: There is a wide spectrum of lesions occuring in urinary bladder that are scrutinized by the eyes of a pathologist. Histopathological analysis of bladder biopsies for diagnosing these lesions is essential and plays a crucial role in early management and prognosis of the patient.
