||The objective of this study was to evaluate the frequency of cancer by occupation among self-employed workers in France, based on data from the French occupational health insurance system for self-employed workers (Régime social des indépendants, RSI). It involved a total of 287,156 male artisans and traders, aged 50 to 59. The rate of work stoppages due to cancer by year of employment was 160 cases/100,000 person-years. Car repairs and construction ranked first for hematopoietic cancers, hotels and restaurants for colorectal cancers and cancers of the upper aerodigestive tract, transportation for bladder cancer, industry for lung cancer and commerce for prostate cancer. These findings support the establishment of a prevention and compensation system covering occupational cancers among self-employed workers.
