Abstract

Bladder cancer is the fourth most common cancer in men and 25% of patients present with advanced disease resulting in a poor prognosis. Urine-based tests, including evaluation for blood in the urine or tumor markers, may allow early detection of cancer with resultant improved survival. Studies need to be performed to evaluate the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of screening high-risk populations such as smokers.
