Abstract

Diabetes mellitus has been associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer, although the evidence is still open to discussion.Methods:We examined this association using data from a multicentre Italian case-control study, conducted between 2003 and 2014 on 690 bladder cancer cases and 665 frequency-matched hospital controls. Odds ratios (ORs) for diabetes were estimated by unconditional multiple logistic regression models, after allowance for major known risk factors for bladder cancer.Results:One hundred and twelve (16.2%) cases and 57 (8.6%) controls reported a diagnosis of diabetes mellitus, corresponding to a multivariate OR of 2.09 (95% confidence interval (CI): 1.46-3.01). Bladder cancer risk increased with duration of diabetes (OR 1.92 for 1--2 (OR 1.48).Conclusion:The present study provides further support of a role of diabetes in bladder cancer aetiology, although some residual confounding by tobacco, body mass index, or other unmeasured covariates may partly explain the association observed.
