Neoplasms of the urachus are an extremely rare entity consisting of incompletely obliterated tissue of the urachal canal during embryonic development, which sometimes remains into adulthood in the urinary bladder. The treatment of choice for these entities is surgical excision, which maximizes patient survival should the lesion prove to be malignant. In this case, we describe a 57-year-old female who presented with a one-year history of left lower quadrant pain. The patient underwent robot-assisted surgery to remove the mass, bladder dome, and median longitudinal ligament en bloc without evidence of recurrence to date.
