Occupation and bladder cancer: a cohort study in Sweden

Br J Cancer. 2005 Apr 11;92(7):1276-8. doi: 10.1038/sj.bjc.6602473.


In a follow-up study of occupational exposures and bladder cancer, an increased risk was observed after an adjustment for smoking, for physicians, administrators and managers, clerical workers and sales agents among men and assistant nurses among women. For physicians, the reason may be early diagnosis; for the other groups a sedentary type of work may have a role in bladder cancer aetiology.
