There were an estimated 50,200 deaths from bladder cancer in the United States in 1991. Cancer of the bladder and urinary tract accounts for approximately 10% of all cancers in men and 4% of all cancers in women. This figure correlates with 5% of all cancer deaths in men and 3% of all cancer deaths in women. Statistics for bladder cancer are in addition to another 25,300 cancers of the kidney and other genitourinary organs.1
