In the current issue of Cancer, Klaassen et al have identified an increased risk of suicide in 4 of 5 genitourinary malignancies, with an especially high risk noted in patients with bladder and kidney cancer. This study identified older age, male sex, single/widowed/divorced status, white race, aggressive disease, and increased surgical intervention as risk factors for increased suicide risk in patients with genitourinary malignancies.
