Cigarette smoking and risk of bladder, pancreas, kidney, and colorectal cancers in Iowa.

​Cigarette smoking may put an individual at high risk of having bladder, kidney, and pancreatic cancer.

This study examined the role of cigarette smoking in the development of kidney, bladder, colorectal, and pancreatic cancer. Researchers collated and analyzed data on the smoking habits and colorectal, kidney, pancreatic, and bladder cancer hazard ratios of 6,008 subjects residing in Iowa.
