Aspirin use may improve survival for bladder and breast cancer, according to a study published online Jan. 15 in JAMA Network Open.
Holli A. Loomans-Kropp, Ph.D., M.P.H., from the National Cancer Institute in Rockville, Maryland, and colleagues investigated the association of aspirin use with the risk for developing new cancers, as well as site-specific cancer-associated survival for bladder, breast, esophageal, gastric, pancreatic, and uterine cancers.
