Occupational asbestos exposure is correlated with a higher risk of urinary bladder cancer. The microscopic size of fibers allows asbestos to enter the bloodstream after inhalation, which can subsequently reach the urinary tract, while ingested particles can also become embedded in the walls of the bladder while they are being flushed out.

A Recent Study Suggests that Asbestos Fibers Are Eliminated Primarily through the Urinary System

Although not formally recognized yet, the link between occupational asbestos exposure and urinary bladder cancer is supported by reliable medical evidence, including a 2012 study conducted by the Ramazzini Institute in Bologna. Researchers analyzed the cases of 23 patients with urinary tumors who had been exposed to asbestos in the workplace in order to expand on preexistent findings.

The study confirms that the body flushes out asbestos fibers, as well as other carcinogenic agents, mainly through the urinary system, which facilitates the development of malignant tumors inside the bladder.

There are multiple ways in which asbestos fibers can reach the urinary bladder. Some ingested fibers can remain inside the bladder after urine expulsion or enter it by traveling through the circulatory system. Asbestos fibers which were inhaled can also reach the bladder, as well as the kidneys, by infiltrating the bloodstream. Over the years, the toxic particles will cause inflammation and tissue scaring, which may, in turn, lead to the onset of urinary bladder cancer.
