In brief: The ureters are the

Tubes draining urine from the kidneys to the bladder.
Ureteral obstruction causes the pelvis of the kidney to swell and bleeding, gross or microscopic, into the urine. Ct's with contrast; cystoscopy with retrograde contrast injection define local extent and anatomy. Urinary cytology sometimes prove cancer, but treatment usually involves removal of ureter and kidney.
