Bladder cancer is the fourth most commonly occurring cancer in men. Caucasians are more likely to be diagnosed with bladder cancer than African Americans or Hispanic Americans. The American Cancer Society estimates about 83,700 new cases (about 64,280 in men and 19,450 in women) for bladder cancer in the United States for 2021. Bladder cancer occurs mainly in older people: about 9 out of 10 people with this cancer are over the age of 55. The average age of people when they are diagnosed is 73. Several risk factors connected with the risk of bladder cancer have been identified, but smoking is the most important risk factor (smokers are at least 3 times as likely to get bladder cancer).
