||Shared occupational risks for transitional cell cancer of the bladder and renal pelvis among men and women in Sweden
||Feb. 2008, Vol.51, No.2, p.83-99. Approx 130 ref.
||Using the Swedish national census and cancer registry data for 1971-1989, transitional cell cancers of the renal pelvis (N=1374) and bladder (N=21,591) were identified. Both cancer sites were significantly elevated among women and men employed in the machinery and electronics industries, sedentary work and indoor work; the highest proportion of the bladder (12%) and renal pelvis (14%) cancers occurred among men in the metal industry. Cancers of the renal pelvis were elevated in several occupational and industry groups for which there was no elevated bladder cancer risk. Other findings are discussed.
