Who is at risk from bladder cancer?

0

A. There are virtually no cases of bladder cancer in people under 40 and the vast majority of cases are diagnosed after the age of 55. Caucasian (ie white) people are more at risk than others. Significantly lower levels of this cancer are found in people of African or Asian origin. There is a very high rate of bladder cancer in countries such as Iraq and Egypt, where it is associated with an infection of the bladder called schistomiasis, which is endemic in those countries. Some industrial chemicals used in dying are known to be linked with a high risk of bladder cancer. These chemicals are no longer in use.
