Bladder Cancer

Risk Factors

Some of the risk factors for bladder cancer are:

  • Smoking: People who smoke are at increased risk of bladder cancer due to the accumulation of a toxic substance in their urine that may damage the bladder lining.
  • Advanced age: Although bladder cancer may occur at any age, it occurs commonly in people over the age of 55 years.
  • Sexual disparities: Men are at an increased risk of developing bladder cancer than women.
  • Prior cancer treatment: Treatment of certain anticancer drugs, such as cyclophosphamide, for other cancer increases the risk of bladder cancer.
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals: Continuous exposure to certain toxic substances, such as arsenic, increases the risk of bladder cancer.
  • Family history of cancer: People with a personal history of bladder cancer or having bladder cancer in their family are at increased risk of bladder cancer.
