Can Bladder Cancer be Prevented?
While there is no known way to prevent bladder cancer, you can reduce your chances of developing the disease. The American Cancer Society offers the following recommendations:
- Do not smoke.
- Avoid occupational exposure to certain chemicals.
- Drink plenty of liquids. This may limit the time that cancer-causing substances present in urine will remain in contact with bladder cells.
- Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
