Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My mother has been diagnosed with PUNLMP under the medical code M8130/1. She had undergone a surgical procedure in which the neoplasm had been removed, and the tissue was sent for biopsy, which confirmed the diagnosis. Can you tell me what further care steps are required for her from now on? Also, please suggest to me if this is a form of malignant cancer. Is there any possibility that this tumor may undergo metastases?

Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query and understood your concern.

It is a papillary urothelial neoplasm of low malignant potential (PUNLMP). Removal of the tumor is the only treatment for it. But there is some risk that it can recur again and in very rare cases, it can recur with invasive cancer. However, it is a precancerous lesion and will not recur again. I suggest she consult a urologist regularly for follow-up to prevent and detect any early recurrence.

Also, please provide me with full details of her histopathological report, blood tests, urine analysis, cystoscopy, etc.

I hope this has helped you.

Thanks and regards.
