Canine Transitional Cell Carcinoma

Dog, Penn VetTransitional cell carcinoma (TCC) is the most common type of bladder cancer in dogs. Most dogs with TCC initially show signs such as straining to urinate, increased frequency of urination, or blood in the urine. As the tumor grows, it obstructs the flow of urine, which can become life-threatening. TCC can also spread to nearby lymph nodes, lungs, and bones. In most cases, TCC of the bladder cannot be cured.

Dr. Nicola Mason's laboratory is actively recruiting dogs for a clinical trial using immunotherapy to address this disease.
