Abstract

Introduction This case describes diagnosis of a T2 transitional cell carcinoma in an 89-year-old woman with known cystocele and urinary retention managed with clean intermittent self-catheterization. Case While self-catheterizing, the patient noted a palpable mass in her cystocele. She eventually pursued urologic evaluation of this mass, which ultimately led to her diagnosis. This is the first reported case of transitional cell carcinoma being found on self-examination by palpating a cystocele.
