I do agree to Dr. Kyle's. In fact, smoking has been the most commonly known adverse event connected with bladder cancer - more common than industrial-chemical connection.

In brief: Sometimes
It is estimated that about half of all bladder cancers are smoking related.
However, most smokers do not develop bladder cancer. Toxins dissolved in urine can cause damage to the bladder lining over time and lead to cancer formation.
