Early menopause in long-term survivors of cancer during adolescence
Treatment for cancer during adolescence carries a substantial risk for early menopause among women still menstruating at age 21, and increasing use of radiation and chemotherapy suggests that these women should be made aware of their smaller window of fertility so that they can plan their families accordingly.

Effects of treatment on fertility in long-term survivors of childhood or adolescent cancer.
Cox regression analysis showed that cancer survivors who married and were presumed to be at risk of pregnancy were less likely than their sibling controls to have ever begun a pregnancy. Expand
Genetic disease in offspring of long-term survivors of childhood and adolescent cancer.
The present study provides reassurance that cancer treatment using older protocols does not carry a large risk for genetic disease in offspring conceived many years after treatment, and cannot rule out the possibility that new therapeutic agents or specific combinations of agents at high doses may damage germ cells.

Demographic patterns for mesothelioma in the United States.
Geographic analysis of U.S. death certificates for pleural cancer among white males and females dying during 1968-78 indicated that mortality rates were significantly elevated in several areas that have had asbestos-manufacturing plants or shipyards. Expand
Cancer incidence and mortality trends among whites in the United States, 1947-84.
This study documented rising incidence and mortality rates for four cancers: lung cancer, melanoma of the skin, multiple myeloma, and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. Expand
Psychosocial consequences of childhood and adolescent cancer survival.
Although survivors of childhood and adolescent cancer do not seem to be at excess risk for major depression, they do appear to have difficulty attaining certain major socioeconomic goals. Expand
Survival of children with brain tumors
Five-year survivals of children with cerebellar astrocytomas were 91%, low-grade supratentorial astroCytomas 71%, high- grade supr atentorialAstrocyTomas 35%, medulloblastomas 39%, ependymomas 28%, and brainstem gliomas 18%. Expand
Implications from seer data on breast cancer management
From the SEER files of the NCI, 8,587 cases of breast cancer diagnosed in 1975 were analyzed and 5.3% were noninvasive and 17.2% had positive axillary lymph nodes. Expand
