This year, doctors will diagnose 56,500 cases of bladder cancer, most of them in men, and more than 12,600 people will die from bladder cancer. Cigarette smokers are two to three times more likely than nonsmokers to develop the disease.

The UCLA faculty has had a long-standing interest in the surgical management of bladder cancer. Major advances have been developed by faculty members over the years in urinary diversion and bladder reconstruction. Based on its standing as a major center for treatment of invasive bladder cancer, the National Cancer Institute is funding a five-year cancer-prevention research project at UCLA, making it the largest prevention study in the United States to focus on bladder cancer in current and former smokers.
