Preventing bladder cancer thanks to knowledge of your DNA

Bladder cancer is characterised by rapid growth of the epithelial cells in the bladder. It is three times more common in men than women and mainly affects people over the age of 60. Smoking is the main cause of the disease. There are usually no symptoms in the early stages of bladder cancer. If symptoms are present, they generally take the form of blood in the urine, the need to pass urine frequently and pain when passing urine. The prognosis and chances of survival depend to a large extent on the stage of the disease.

Bladder cancer and heredity

The risk of bladder cancer is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of bladder cancer.
