The American Cancer Society estimates that 83,730 new cases of bladder cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2021 and that 17,200 people will die of the disease. [45] The incidence of bladder cancer increases with age, with the median age at diagnosis being 73 years; bladder cancer is rarely diagnosed before age 40 years. [46]
