||Occupation and bladder cancer in a hospital-based case-control study in Spain
||May 2008, Vol.65, No.5, p.347-353. 38 ref.
||The association between occupation and bladder cancer was investigated in case-control study conducted in Spain. Detailed information on life-time occupational history, smoking habits, medical history and other factors was obtained for 1219 patients with transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder and 1271 controls selected from 18 hospitals in Spain. Statistically significant increased risks were observed among men employed as machine operators in the printing industry (OR 5.4), among men employed in the transportation equipment industry (OR 1.6) and among those who had worked for ≥10 years in the electrical/gas/sanitary services (OR 3.9) and in hotels and other lodgings (OR 3.1). Men who worked as miscellaneous mechanics and repairers (OR 2.0) and as supervisors in production occupations (OR 2.1) also had excess risks for bladder cancer. Male farmers and those who worked in crop and livestock production had decreased risks for bladder cancer. No significant associations between occupation or industry and bladder cancer risk were found among women.
