||This article reviews a report, published in 2003, on the estimation of the number of cancers attributable to occupational causes in France. The study was restricted to men. Epidemiological data allow estimations to be made for the following cancers, including in some cases the proportion due to the main known causal agents (in particular asbestos, heavy metals, ionizing radiation, volatile organic substances, aromatic amines, wood dust, oils and tars): bronchopulmonary cancers; pleural mesothelioma; bladder cancer; sinonasal cancers; leukaemia.
