This study used data from the Communicable Disease Surveillance Centre's national HIV database and the Thames Cancer Registry to assess the risk of cancer in HIV-infected people in southeast England. Among 26 080 HIV-infected men with 158 660 person-years follow-up, 1851 cancers, and among 7110 HIV-infected women (31 098 person-years), 171 cancers were(More)
Among women in the Thames Cancer Registry database with a first breast cancer diagnosed between 1961–1995 observed numbers of subsequent cancers were compared with expected numbers and standardized incidence ratios were calculated. The occurrence of breast cancers subsequent to cancers at other sites was also examined. Women diagnosed with breast cancer(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate recent trends in prostate cancer incidence and mortality, with particular reference to changes in diagnostic techniques and treatment. METHODS The Thames Cancer Registry was used to identify all men, resident in SE England, diagnosed with prostate cancer between 1990 and 1999. Information regarding prostate cancer mortality was(More)
The epidemiology of testicular germ cell cancer is relatively well understood, but less is known about the epidemiology of ovarian germ cell cancer. Cases of testicular (7910) and ovarian (453) germ cell cancer diagnosed 1960-1999 were extracted from the Thames Cancer Registry. The incidence rate in males doubled in the period from 2.0 to 4.4 per 100,000.(More)
OBJECTIVE Multiple primary cancers may arise in an individual because they share a common environmental risk factor (such as smoking); genetic predisposition or immunodeficiency may predispose to both cancers, or treatment for one cancer may cause a second cancer. The objective of this analysis was to identify which, if any, cancers occur more often than(More)
A case-control study was conducted to investigate risk factors for stomach cancer in a rural population in China. Linzhou Cancer Registry was used to identify cases of stomach cancer, aged between 30 and 75 years, diagnosed between January 1998 and April 1999. Three neighbourhood controls were selected for each case, matched according to age, sex and(More)
Women diagnosed with 2 cancers of the breast and/or ovary are at higher risk of developing subsequent cancers. Using registrations from the Thames Cancer Registry, we quantified the risks at different cancer sites. Increased risks were found for cancers that are part of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 tumour spectrum: oropharyngeal cancer, malignant melanoma of the(More)
BACKGROUND Multiple cancers may occur in an individual because of a genetic predisposition, environmental exposure, cancer therapy, or immunological deficiency. Colorectal cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers, and inherited factors play an important role in its aetiology. AIMS To characterise the occurrence of multiple primary cancers in(More)
Linzhou City has one of the highest incidences of oesophageal cancer in China, and in the world. A case-control study was here conducted to investigate potential risk factors in this area. Linzhou Cancer Registry was used to identify cases of oesophageal cancer, aged between 30 and 75, diagnosed between January 1998 and April 1999. Three neighbourhood(More)
