MYTHS VS FACTS

Myth OR Fact?

Frequent urination can increase your risk of bladder cancer


Myth: Urination frequency is related to the size of your bladder. It is not a bladder cancer risk factor.


Myth OR Fact?

Hair dyes can cause bladder cancer.


Fact: Chemicals used to darken hair used to contain a tar like compound that was shown to be linked to increased risk of bladder cancer in women. Even though modern hair dyes are made without the tar compounds and the toxicity is much less, I personally do not trust that they are completely harmless.


Myth OR Fact?

Tobacco increases your risk of bladder cancer


Fact: It is no secret that tobacco causes CANCER period. But it is certainly a big risk factor for bladder cancer.


Myth OR Fact?

Contaminated drinking water increases your risk for bladder cancer.


Fact: This should be pretty obvious but I stress this, clean water is crucial to your health in general but more importantly to your bladder health.
