Description of intervention(s) / exposure
A multicolour-fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) approach will be performed on a liquid-based washing urinary cytology and on suspicious lesions in all participants. This will be performed once in all cases. The duration of fluorescence in situ hybridization and the histopathologic evaluation will be performed by our uro-pathologist. They will each last approximately two days. It will neither mean longer hospitalization nor more than the usual tissue specimens for all patients.

Summary
Brief summary
The percentage of the false positive lesions in photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) ranges between 7,1% and 47% in the literature.
Careful interpretation and indication of PDD is necessary in case of previous instillation therapy especially with BCG and false positive rates of 64%.
Whether histologically proven false positive fluorescence is caused by early malignant genetic changes has been discussed but is still the object of research..
