  1. I started smoking when i first went to college about a year and a half ago. At college i started to smoke about everyday and have done so with a few breaks for the past 6 months. I recently got a CT scan and diagnosed with bladder cancer. I read online that marijuana could cause bladder cancer but ive only read about one or two actual research experiment. Does anyone think that smoking everyday may have caused the cancer or im just unlucky? and if not do u think i should continue smoking? im only 18 so bladder cancer is rare even though it is a small tumor that shouldn't be too serious.
  2. did some quick research on marijuana causing bladder cancer
    and each study said that ~90% of the men tested are heavy cig smokers..
    i highly doubt that at 18 the cause of your cancer is marijuana related.
    do you smoke cigs regularly though?
  3. It might be the weed, it might not. Unfortunmately, there's no real way of telling. Someone I know was diagnosed with (mild) testicular cancer, and of course I found a study that linked cannabis use to testicular cancer (of course, I didn't find any subsequent studies, so take it for what you will). If I were you, I'd take a break for a little while, but I doubt it would be detrimental to you if you to keep smoking.

    Good luck
  4. All I can say is that not smoking wont make the cancer go away.

    Swayze's still smoking cigs. I think weed is way less harmful.
  5. at only 18 i find it impossible to belive that weed caused it, hell at 18 cigs dont even cause cancer, at 18 i said peeps at 18, not later, lol. Your body has not had long exposures to high levels long enough, it is most probably genetic at such a young age.

    Best o Luck man, Have a quick safe recovery!
  6. Coming from a cancer survivor:

    No, I dont think marijuana was the cause of your cancer. Most tests done by non-government agencies (so not under government pressure/bias) show THC actually reduces cancer growth.

    I smoked almost daily through chemotherapy, and have been in remission for over a year.
  7. thanks for the help.
    I'm getting the polyp removed tuesday so hopefully it isn't a serious one.
    Definitely going to have to smoke some dank after the surgery to stop that pain haha
    but i think ill slow down my smoking for a couple months just to be safe.
