Abstract

Aim: The neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a parameter that has been shown to be effective as a prognostic marker in many solid tumors. It is aimed to investigate NLR and the systemic immune-inflammation index (SII) in predicting the overall survival and lymph node positivity in bladder cancer (BC).
