In the United States, an estimated 57,400 cases of cancer of the urinary bladder are diagnosed and 12,500 deaths from the disease occur each year. These account for 6% of all new cases of cancer among men and 2% of cases among women, as well as 3% of cancer deaths among men and 1% among women. This chapter reviews the epidemiology of bladder cancer. Topics covered include demographic patterns, risk factors, biological markers of exposure, tumor markers, and preventive measures.
