Summary of "Does the diagnosis of bladder cancer lead to higher rates of smoking cessation? Findings from the Medicare Health Outcomes Survey."

Smoking is the most common risk factor for bladder cancer (BC) and is associated with adverse clinical outcomes. The diagnosis of BC represents a 'teachable moment' for smoking cessation. We investigate the likelihood of smoking cessation after BC diagnosis in a population database.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Partial or complete blockage in any part of the URETHRA that can lead to difficulty or inability to empty the URINARY BLADDER. It is characterized by an enlarged, often damaged, bladder with frequent urges to void.

A decrease in the incidence and frequency of SMOKING. Smoking reduction differs from SMOKING CESSATION in that the smoker continues to smoke albeit at a lesser frequency without quitting.

Tumors or cancer of the URINARY BLADDER.

A HERNIA-like condition in which the weakened pelvic muscles cause the URINARY BLADDER to drop from its normal position. Fallen urinary bladder is more common in females with the bladder dropping into the VAGINA and less common in males with the bladder dropping into the SCROTUM.

Pipes for smoking tobacco, cannabis, and other substances, in which smoke is drawn through water. Do not confuse with SMOKING PIPES.
