The aim of NBCS is to investigate lifestyle factors and genetic factors in relation to the risk of bladder cancer, the course of the disease, and the effect of therapy. The influence of specific characteristics of the bladder tumor itself on the course and effect of therapy is also being studied. The ambition of NBCS is to be able to determine which people are at high risk of developing a bladder tumor and to be able to personalize the treatment of patients with a bladder tumor even better to the individual patient. NBCS consists of questionnaire data, additional information from medical files and existing national health registration systems (cancer registries, registries of death certificates and pathology archives) and biomaterial (DNA, whole blood and tumor tissue).
