Complete Health Indicator Report of Bladder Cancer

Definition

The rate of incidence of cancer of the bladder in Utah per 100,000 population.

Numerator

The number of incidence of bladder cancer among Utah population for a specific time period (ICD-10: C67).

Denominator

Population of Utah for a given period of time.

Data Interpretation Issues

Incidence rates may vary from source to source. This may be because of having more or less updated information or using different population databases.

Why Is This Important?

No one knows the exact causes of bladder cancer. However, there are certain risk factors that are associated with developing bladder cancer. Still, most people with known risk factors do not develop bladder cancer, and many who do develop this disease have none of these factors. Doctors can seldom explain why one person develops this cancer and another does not. Studies have found the following factors increase your risk of developing bladder cancer: old age; being male; White/Caucasian; tobacco use; exposure to certain workplace environments such as rubber, chemical and leather industries, hairdressers, machinists, metal workers, printers, painters, textile workers, truck drivers; and a family history of bladder cancer.
