Abstract

The African continent is unique in terms of its epidemiological evidence, causes, and possible future trends for bladder cancer (BCa). Factors include smoking rates and parasitic infection with Schistosoma haematobium. These issues in Africa could be addressed by increasing cultural awareness of BCa causes and symptoms via social media, banning smoking in public places, and ensuring that praziquantel is readily available in areas at high risk of schistosomiasis.
