Molti studi hanno richiamato l'attenzione sulla possibile associazione tra lavoro ed esposizione all’ amianto e insorgenza dei tumori dell'apparato urinario. Ormai è certo che l’esposizione professionale ad alcune sostanze può indurre lo sviluppo di neoplasie. L’amianto è tra le sostanze più incriminate per quanto riguarda questo settore, tracce di amianto sono trovate nella popolazione affetta da carcinoma della vescica e del rene. Il lavoro riportato documenta la stretta correlazione tra esposizione all’amianto e patologia neoplastica.
