May is Bladder Cancer Month.
Did you know that bladder cancer is one of the most common genitourinary cancers in adults worldwide, and it is the fourth most common cancer in men? Women should be aware than although less common in women, women tend to have a worse prognosis if diagnosed.
The American Cancer Society’s estimates in 2019:
about 80,470 new cases of bladder cancer (about 61,700 in men and 18,770 in women) will be diagnosed and about 17,670 deaths from bladder cancer (about 12,870 in men and 4,800 in women) will occur.
