||Summary of papers presented at a Colloquium organised in Paris on 24 May 1991 concerning the prevention and detection of bladder cancer and the role of tobacco smoking on its development. Main topics discussed: classification and evolution of bladder cancers; risk factors (results of an epidemiological survey of 700 cases; risk factors recognised today; role of tobacco; case-control study of environmental factors); detection, diagnosis and prognosis; role of endoscopy; anti-smoking campaings; role of the occupational physician in preventive efforts. It was recommended that in a case of bladder cancer all possible (present or past) occupational factors should be investigated, even in heavy smokers, so that the disease can be declared as an occupational disease or as being of an occupational nature.
