Smoking May Make Bladder Cancer More Aggressive

Posted: Updated:

 

In tonight's Healthier Me, a new study has showed that smoking not only raises the risk of developing bladder cancer, it also increases the chance that smokers will have an aggressive form.

 

     Previous studies have showed that smoking is one of the most common causes of bladder cancer but did not look at how it affects the progression of the disease.

After analyzing bladder tumors from over 200 patients, researchers found that cancers among heavy smokers were more likely to be deadly than those among people who smoked less or not at all.
