Men have had a substantially higher risk of developing bladder cancer than women. This has prompted research on androgen-mediated androgen receptor (AR) signaling in urothelial cancer. Indeed, increasing preclinical evidence indicates that AR activation correlates with the promotion of urothelial carcinogenesis and tumor outgrowth. In this article, we summarize and discuss available data suggesting the involvement of androgens and the AR pathway in the development and progression of urothelial cancer. Although precise mechanisms for the functions of AR and related signals in urothelial cells remain far from being fully understood, current observations may offer effective chemopreventive and therapeutic approaches for urothelial cancer. Clinical application of various anti-AR therapies available for AR-dependent prostate cancer to urothelial cancer patients is thus anticipated.
