Vienna: Smoking leads to a number of urological diseases, experts said.

Reduced fertility, impotence, and bladder carcinoma are problems caused by smoking, the Association of Austrian Urologists (BVU) said Thursday.

However, few people are aware of the fact that only 13 percent of respondents said they know smoking has an impact on the urinary bladder, Xinhua reported.

One in four cancer patients has urologic diseases in Austria.
