Título Occupational risks for male breast cancer in Sweden
Información bibliográfica Apr. 1988, Vol.45, No.4, p.275-276. 8 ref.
Resumen The relation of occupation to the risk of male breast cancer was investigated in an epidemiological study using data from the Cancer-Environment Registry of Sweden. From 1961-1979, 333 cases of breast cancer occurred among Swedish men employed in 1960 (97% classified as adenocarcinomas). The highest risk was observed for men employed making soap and perfume, and a significant risk for men engaged in newspaper printing. Although it is unclear whether the findings point to actual occupational hazards for male breast cancer, systematically obtained data may be useful for future investigation into the causes of male breast cancer.
