Bladder Cancer Prevention

Columbia Urology is a leader in preventive medicine for bladder cancer. Our Center for Holistic Urology is currently conducting extensive studies into the use of natural substances to prevent and treat bladder cancer.

If possible, bladder cancer patients should abstain from smoking—a significant risk factor for developing this disease—and limit their occupational exposures to certain dyes and chemicals used to process rubber and leather, which have been shown to increase the risk of bladder cancer.
