Gonorrhea and Male Bladder Cancer-Ties That Bound

A man with gonorrhea is probably twice as likely to develop bladder cancer, according to a new study//.

Publishing the results in the British Journal of Cancer, lead author David Michaud from the Harvard School of Public Health, put forward the statement based on case studies of around 51,000 American men. Around 286 cases of bladder cancer were noted in men suffering from gonorrhea.

Results analyzed showed that those suffering from the sexually transmitted diseases were twice as likely to developed bladder cancer.

Bladder cancer is the ninth most common cancer in US, with almost half of them fatal. Smoking is the main cause, and accounts for 60 percent of male bladder cancers and 30 percent of female bladder cancers according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in Lyon, France.

The link established between gonorrhea and invasive or advanced bladder cancer is found to be even stronger in those who smoke.

Says Michaud "Gonorrhea is an infection that often recurs, causing local inflammation and symptoms such as incomplete emptying of the bladder. The inflammation itself or the associated symptoms could be contributing to the development of bladder cancer
