The detrimental consequences of tobacco use in urology are often underestimated, despite its strong association with urological pathologies, including malignancies, sexual dysfunction, and urinary tract symptoms. Tobacco's components damage DNA, increasing the risk of bladder and urinary tract cancers, as well as renal cancer. In males, it's also correlated with prostate and penile cancers. Functionally, it leads to sexual dysfunctions, reducing erectile capacity and fertility in males. In females, it's linked to elevated urinary incontinence. In both genders, urinary tract symptoms worsen. Smoking cessation is consistently beneficial and should be encouraged by healthcare practitioners.
