Did you know that bladder cancer is the 10th most common cancer in the world? Bladder cancer is more common as a person grows older. A person’s chance of getting bladder cancer may be raised by certain risk factors like smoking, being exposed to chemicals in your workplace or the use of certain cancer drugs or radiation can make a person more likely to get bladder cancer.
