Sir, Bouchardy et al (2007) reported that the Geneva Cancer Registry records show a substantial rise in breast cancer incidence in women under the age of 40 years in the period 2002 – 2004, and called for confirmation of their finding in other population-based cancer registries. We therefore abstracted data from the cancer registries of two other(More)
We considered the risk of second basal cell cancers (BCC) of the skin using a population-based series of 1,868 BCC collected between 1976 and 1985 in the Swiss Cantons of Vaud and Neuchâtel, and followed-up to the end of 2003. Overall, 507 second BCC were observed versus 59.98 expected, corresponding to a standardized incidence ratio (SIR) of 8.45 (95% CI:(More)
Patients diagnosed with oral and pharyngeal (OP) cancer have a substantial excess risk of second OP cancer, but risk quantification is still uncertain and scanty information is available on the absolute excess risk of second OP cancer. We considered the risk of second OP primary cancer in a population-based series of 3,092 first primary OP cancers(More)
The authors considered the incidence of second neoplasms among 1,672 oesophageal cancers diagnosed between 1974 and 2004 in the Cancer Registries of the Swiss Cantons of Vaud and Neuchâtel, and followed-up to 2004. A total of 141 second neoplasms were observed versus 38.5 expected, corresponding to a standardized incidence ratio (SIR) of 3.7 (95% confidence(More)
The incidence of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) has been related to ionizing radiation, particularly for exposure occurring at young age. In this study, we considered the incidence of second skin neoplasms in long-term survivors from childhood cancer. We considered second primary cancers occurring among 776 subjects (436 males, 340 females) with first primary(More)
AIM The aim of the study is to analyse the comorbidity of learning disabilities (LD), its variation relating to the age of the children and to interpret the possible meaning of these data. METHODS All patients in age of compulsory education (aged 5-16) diagnosed as LD in Piedmont, registered in the Regional Informative System NPI.net, in the years(More)
This is the first comprehensive evaluation of completeness of case ascertainment in Swiss cancer registration. There is currently no method available that is considered to be the gold standard. Apart from simple measures such as the proportion of cases where registration was initiated by a death certificate and the proportion of diagnoses on the basis of(More)
