Título Cancer incidence among male Massachusetts firefighters, 1987-2003
Información bibliográfica May 2008, Vol.51, No.5, p.329-335. 49 ref.
Resumen Firefighters are known to be exposed to recognized or probable carcinogens. Previous studies have found elevated risks of several types of cancers in firefighters. Standardized morbidity odds ratio (SMORs) were used to evaluate the cancer risk in white, male firefighters compared to police and all other occupations in the Massachusetts Cancer Registry from 1986 to 2003. Control cancers were those not associated with firefighters in previous studies. Risks were moderately elevated among firefighters for colon cancer (SMOR=1.36) and brain cancer (SMOR=1.90). Weaker evidence of increased risk was observed for bladder cancer, kidney cancer and Hodgkin's lymphoma. These findings are compatible with previous reports.
