According to Dr. Julien Deturmeny, urologist at the European Hospital of Marseille, 80% of bladder cancers are attributable to tobacco.
The frequency of cancers of the bladder and kidney continues to grow, in fact: 30 000 new cases per year for the first city, 14 000 for the second.
« 80% of bladder cancers are related to tobacco and prolonged exposure to environmental toxic substances such as aromatic amines in paint for example« explains the Dr. Julien Deturmeny, urologist at the European Hospital of Marseille.
A statement that challenges. As for the bladder, the effects of smoking would have an impact in kidney cancer with obesity and hypertension. While the number of urological cancers continues to evolve, therapeutic options have also increased. The most important innovation is in surgery.
« In the treatment of some urologic cancers, we have gone from organ removal by open surgery to minimally invasive surgerycontinues the surgeon. In two or three small holes, we manage to treat a tumor. By performing partial surgeries, we limit the aggressiveness of the treatment. Significant complications of infections are also significantly reduced. Finally, recovery for the patient is much faster.«
« A new step has even been taken with percutaneous surgery. The idea is to place a needle in the tumor and send energy to destroy it. "
