While there have been discussion on this board about military exposure, I have yet to see any sign of acceptance of bladder cancer disability claims by the military, although the VA is a provider of bladder cancer treatment to those with VA coverage, as part of the comprehensive care provided.

You can review the major risk factors for bladder cancer at :

and you can review past discussions of military involvement on this board, primarily centered around Agent Orange and Project Rainbow exposure, bu using search terms of MILITARY or AGENT ORANGE. VA may also be a useful search term.

Your local Vet Center Office may be able to offer help dealing with bladder cancer.
