Answer

According to American Cancer Society, an estimated 80,470 bladder cancers and 73,820 kidney cancers will be diagnosed in the United States in 2019. Primary malignancies of the ureters and other urinary organs, on the other hand, are much less common; it is estimated that 3930 such cancers will be diagnosed and 980 patients will die of this disease in 2019. [5] Deaths from urothelial malignancies have been decreasing since 1995.
