Abstract Context Previous studies have reported substantial worldwide regional variations in bladder cancer (BCa) incidence and mortality. Objective To describe contemporary international variations in BCa incidence and mortality rates and trends using the most recent data from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Evidence acquisition Estimated 2008 BCa incidence and mortality rates for each country by sex were obtained from GLOBOCAN. Recent trends in incidence for 43 countrie...

Primary prevention of cancer refers to the prevention of new cases of cancer, whereas secondary prevention is aimed at reducing the negative health effects of the disease by early detection or treatment. There are three basic steps in the process of cancer prevention: risk identification, risk quantification, and risk reduction. These are discussed in detail below, after an introduction presenting the burden of occupational cancer and a review of the process in the identification and prevention ...

Abstract Purpose To examine the overall and stage-specific age-adjusted incidence, 5-year survival and mortality rates of bladder cancer (BCa) in the United States, between 1973 and 2009. Materials and methods A total of 148,315 BCa patients were identified in the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results database, between years 1973 and 2009. Incidence, mortality, and 5-year cancer-specific survival rates were calculated. Temporal trends were quantified using the estimated annual percentage ch...

Objectives To assess the relationship between occupational exposure to metalworking fluids (MWFs) in the steel-producing industry and bladder cancer incidence. Methods A nested case–control study on bladder cancer was set up in a cohort of workers from six French steel-producing factories. Three controls were randomly selected for each incident bladder cancer case diagnosed from 2006 to 2012. Controls were matched to cases on age at diagnosis and counter-matched on a surrogate measure of exposur...

Many known and potential human carcinogens are related to workplace exposures. Primary prevention is the optimal prevention strategy for occupational cancer control through activities intended to eliminate harmful exposure(s) in the workplace. Secondary prevention provided by medical screening remains an important component of sound occupational health practice in many instances. One of the aims of secondary prevention is to reduce morbidity and mortality through detection of illness at an early...
