Q:

What causes bladder cancer in women?

A:

Men are much more likely to have bladder cancer than women, but it does not mean that there are more causes of the disease in men than in women. What lead men to bladder cancer can also lead women to it.

Smoking is the greatest risk factor for men. It is the same when it comes to women. Smokers, both men and women, get bladder cancer twice as often as non-smokers.

Exposure to various chemicals, family history, age and race may also cause bladder cancer in women. What’s more, chronic bladder diseases, like urinary tract infection which women often have, could be warning signs of the cancer.
