The data are consistent with a negative association between Cannabis use and nontesticular cancer, but there is low confidence in this result due to high heterogeneity and a paucity of data for many cancer types.
The perceptions and beliefs of cannabis use among Canadian genitourinary cancer patients.
The perceptions among genitourinary cancer patients regarding cannabis use as part of their care plans and the importance of healthcare providers remaining familiar with current evidence on cannabis to support patient conversations about cannabis use are investigated.
Prevalence and predictors of cannabis use among men receiving androgen-deprivation therapy for advanced prostate cancer.
Cannabis use among men with advanced prostate cancer receiving ADT is more prevalent than in the general population and the majority of other oncological cohorts, and lower testosterone levels and reported therapeutic benefit among cannabis users warrants confirmation in appropriate clinical trials.
Use of cannabis in urological cancer patients: A review to evaluate risk for cancer development, therapeutic use, and symptom management.
Given the paucity of data on cannabis use for therapeutic purposes in UC, large, prospective trials with adequate followup times to observe the effect of cannabis use on UCs are warranted to improve the evidence base.
The Relationship Between Cannabis and Cancer in Men

Cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug in Canada, and is much more likely to be used by young people (15 to 24 years) than by adults (25+ years; Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse [CCSA],
The highest ASIR of bladder cancer was observed in North America, in regions with very high Human Development Index (HDI) and in Europe, and the highest mortality due to bladder cancerwas observed in Europe and in regionsWith very high human development index and in EMRO.
The relationship between cannabis and male infertility, sexual health, and neoplasm: a systematic review
This work has suggested that young males comprise the demographic most likely to consume cannabis, and these individuals will be most vulnerable to its short‐ and long‐term consequences.
Cannabis in cancer care
Delta‐9‐tetrahydrocannabinol, the main bioactive cannabinoid in the plant, has been available as a prescription medication approved for treatment of cancer chemotherapy‐induced nausea and vomiting and anorexia associated with the AIDS wasting syndrome.
Epidemiology, aetiology and screening of bladder cancer
In conclusion, screening studies have suggested a survival benefit amongst screened non-symptomatic populations with known risk factors, but this has not become standard practice.


Cigarette smoking and bladder cancer in men: A pooled analysis of 11 case‐control studies
Using a combined analysis of 11 case‐control studies, this work accurately measured the relationship between cigarette smoking and bladder cancer in men and found there was a linear increasing risk of bladder cancer with increasing duration of smoking.
Tobacco smoking and cancer: A meta‐analysis
The analysis of heterogeneity showed that study type, gender and adjustment for confounding factors significantly influence the RRs estimates and the reliability of the studies, and pooled RRs for respiratory cancers were greater than the pooled estimates for other sites.

The available evidence does not point towards a different carcinogenic effect of tobacco smoking in men and women or in whites and blacks, and the evidence for non-transitional bladder carcinoma is limited, but consistent with an increased risk.
California Men's Health Study (CMHS): a multiethnic cohort in a managed care setting
A wide variety of epidemiologic, health services, and outcomes research utilizing a rich array of electronic, biological, and clinical resources is possible within this multiethnic cohort of 45-to-69 year old males.
The association between marijuana smoking and lung cancer: a systematic review.
Given the prevalence of marijuana smoking and studies predominantly supporting biological plausibility of an association ofarijuana smoking with lung cancer on the basis of molecular, cellular, and histopathologic findings, physicians should advise patients regarding potential adverse health outcomes until further rigorous studies are performed.
Patterns of use, sequence of onsets and correlates of tobacco and cannabis.
Toward a Global View of Alcohol, Tobacco, Cannabis, and Cocaine Use: Findings from the WHO World Mental Health Surveys
Background Alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drug use cause considerable morbidity and mortality, but good cross-national epidemiological data are limited. This paper describes such data from the first
