2. Workplace Exposures

Certain professions can increase a person’s likelihood of developing bladder cancer due to their exposure to certain chemicals in the workplace. Those who work in the dye industry, for example, may have a higher risk due to working with chemicals called aromatic amines.

According to Healthline.com, other lines of work include painters, hairdressers, machinists, and truck drivers. Additionally, the American Cancer Society says those involved in the manufacturing of rubber, leather, textiles, and paint products have a higher risk as a result of using certain organic chemicals.
