dysplasia with cis

I am not sure I would dignify it by calling it a "definition." I would think rather that the pathologist used this term as a "description."

Hello , and thank you!
You 've been very clear !
So the definition is " focal cis " ?

Well, I am NOT a pathologist, but here is how I would interpret that...There are areas that are not normal with strange looking cells (the "dysplasia") AND areas within that that show definite features of CIS. When I was diagnosed, the first biopsy showed "areas of dysplasia." So the uro went back in and took more samples and the result was CIS.

CIS is kind of like a rash on the bladder lining....a thin layer of malignant cells rather than a lumpy tumor. So I suspect that there are areas where the cells show definite properties that CIS cells do and around that areas where there are sort of non-specific abnormalities, but not quite CIS.

Does that muddy it all up or make it clearer?

Hello everyone, I have a doubt!
The histology of my dad says "dysplasia area with contiguous cis focuses".
I want to know if the cis is considered focal or diffuse!
thank you
