The association between tobacco use and urothelial cancer of the bladder is well known. Given the worsening tobacco epidemic, here we make the case for systematic targeted points of intervention for urologists and other professionals to intervene against bladder cancer. Awareness of contemporary checkpoints where we can intervene for counseling patients may help medical education in a tobacco-pandemic difficult setting. (C) 2021 Published by Elsevier Inc.
