As one of the most common highly invasive tumors in the urinary system, bladder cancer has a high incidence rate and recurrence rate due to the lack of accurate biomarkers. MicroRNA (miRNA) is a non coding microRNA that regulates human gene expression and participates in cell growth cycle, development, proliferation, apoptosis, and differentiation. Studies have found that miRNA can affect the proliferation, invasion, metastasis and other malignant biological behaviors of bladder cancer through various ways, and may become a new biomarker in the early diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of bladder cancer. This article reviews the research progress of miRNA expression in the diagnosis and treatment of bladder cancer.
