German term or phrase: Harnblasentumor, Harnwegstumor, Urotheltumor, Tumor der ableitenden Harnwege
They all fall into the category of urothelial tumors, but how to differentiate them? Bladder tumor, tumor of the lower urogenital tract? I would appreciate the advise of an expert in this particular field.

All terms appear in a scientific article about the etiology, pathogenesis and epidemiology of urothelial tumors

tumour affecting the bladder, urinary tract, urothelium and urethra
Explanation:
Assuming that the 'ableitende Harnwege' refers to the single 'urethra' (literally 'efferent urinary vessels')

If the \'ableitende Harnwege\' are proximal to the bladder, then they are the \'ureters\', which accounts for the plural. The problem there would be that they do not fit the description \'ableitend\', since they drain urine from the kidneys, not the bladder.

The urothelium is an epithelial lining in the bladder, ureters and renal pelvices (Dorland). :-)

agree  Fantutti: Urethra (Harnröhre) or ureters (Harnleiter), that's the big question. However, a human body has only o n e urethra. So I'd go for the ureters, simply because of the plural in the German text.

  -> That was exactly my thinking. Since there is no evidence that an anatomical sequence is being followed in the source text, ureters is almost certainly the appropriate term here.
