Abstract
A discussion was presented of a conference, held in 1989, to evaluate what is presently known about occupational hazards linked to bladder cancer and the recommendations for screening of asymptomatic persons or groups who are at risk of developing this disease. The conference attempted to determine which screening tests were effective for early detection; which tests needed validation studies; whether early detection of bladder cancer allowed for more effective, less morbid, lower cost therapeutic intervention; whether bladder cancer screening should be recommended for high risk groups and, if so, what should be the content of the recommendation; and whether there should be a controlled clinical trial to establish the therapeutic efficacy of early detection and intervention for bladder cancer. Timeliness was considered essential in these issues since many persons at high risk have not experienced the average latency period for occupational and environmental cancer which covers a range of 4 to 40 years, with an average of 20 years.
