Sex hormones affect bladder cancer risk in women

Posted Oct 01 2008 8:20pm
Menopausal status as well as age at menopause may modify the risk of women developing bladder cancer, researchers suggest in the American Journal of Epidemiology.
The risk in men is greater than that in women. Hormonal factors may be involved, say the Boston-based investigators, because "gender differences in cigarette smoking patterns, occupational exposures and other differences in known risk factor distributions cannot explain the excess bladder cancer observed for males."
