About 70,980 new cases of bladder cancer were diagnosed in 2009 . Bladder cancer, the fourth most common cancer in U.S. men, is three times more common in men than in women . The number of bladder cancer cases diagnosed annually in the USA has increased more than 50 % between 1985 and 2005 , which can be explained only in part by the aging U.S. population . In addition, this increased incidence cannot be explained by changes in health care screening practices or improved diagnostics because the means by which bladder cancer is diagnosed (cystoscopy and biopsy) have remained constant since the 1930s.
