Abstract
Occupational exposure to aromatic amines has been known to cause bladder cancer since Rehn identified the first few cases in workers in the new organic chemical industry in 1895. Since that time, numerous occupations and specific substances have been associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer (Tables 8 and 9). Beyond the certainties that specific aromatic amines have been demonstrated to be human occupational bladder carcinogens, and that a broad range of occupations are at risk of bladder cancer, a well-informed approach to the prevention and management of bladder cancer depends on appreciating various controversies involved in its primary and secondary prevention and treatment. The reader is referred to a report of a national conference held in 1989 (Schulte et ai, 1990) to delineate these issues from which most of {he material for this chapter is drawn .
