Although the number is not as high as for many other forms of cancer, it has been estimated by the American cancer Society that over 60,000 people annually are diagnosed with bladder cancer. Of those diagnosed with the disease approximately 20 percent died. Next to heart disease, cancer in all of its forms is the second leading cause of death in the country but what is surmising is that bladder cancer is often caused by a chemical used in the home or in the workplace. A bladder cancer law firm can help you gather evidence linking exposure to a specific chemical to the cancer.
The chemicals that have been linked directly with bladder cancer are many; they include petrochemicals, combustion exhaust, coal tar etc. Those that are most at risk are people employed in the railroad industry, truck drivers and anyone working in the oil and gas industry.
Knowing that environmental factors are the primary cause of all cancers, it is reasonable to suggest that bladder cancer also is directly related to your working environment. Anyone that is employed in an industry that exposes them to petrochemicals etc is well advised to consult with a bladder cancer law firm to confirm their own research results.
