insulating around shower , should I worry about moisture??

I am finishing up my bathroom and am now starting to drywall the interior walls. I have put insulation between the walls for sound isolation, I want to put insulation up the shower chase, but I am worried about condensation/mold. Should I be worried? Any suggestions on how I should handle this would be appreciated.

Thanks

Insulation

There is no problem insulating the chase. Many fixtures are installed on exterior walls containing insulation. Any condensation/mold that could occur would happen regardless of insulation if a leak were to develope.

I guess I was more worried about condensation more than anything. Anyway, I just insulated above the shower valve so it should not be a problem. I just wanted to ask before I button up.
