Risk of cancer in a large cohort of nonaspirin NSAID users: a population-based study
Protective associations of NSAIDs against colon, rectal, stomach, and ovarian cancer are found and reasons for the increased risk for some cancer sites are not clear. Expand
Risk of second cancer among women with breast cancer
The general excess of cancer after a breast cancer diagnosis is likely to be explained by treatment for breast cancer and by shared genetic or environmental risk factors, although the general excess suggests that there may be additional explanations such as increased surveillance and general cancer susceptibility.

Atypical cancer pattern in patients with Parkinson's disease
The observed cancer pattern supports the hypothesis that constituents of tobacco smoke inhibit or delay the development of Parkinson's disease, but a low smoking prevalence appears to be only part of the explanation for the decreased cancer incidence. Expand
Cancer occurrence in Danish diabetic patients: duration and insulin effects
The observed duration effects suggest that both increased surveillance for cancer in the first years after diagnosis of diabetes, and reverse causation, where undiagnosed cancers increase the likelihood of diabetes diagnosis, play a role. Expand
Cancer risk among statin users: A population‐based cohort study

In summary, individuals prescribed statins experienced a slightly reduced cancer incidence compared to population controls of nonusers and users of other lipid‐lowering drugs. Expand
A population-based cohort study of the risk of colorectal and other cancers among users of low-dose aspirin
The results do not support a major protective effect of low-dose aspirin on the development of colorectal or other cancers, and the observed excesses of kidney and brain cancers are not likely to be causally related to the use of low -dose aspirin. Expand
Malignant Melanoma and Other Types of Cancer Preceding Parkinson Disease
The finding of an increased prevalence of malignant melanoma and skin carcinoma before the diagnosis of Parkinson disease weakens the suggested hypothesis that these cancers are caused by the treatment of Parkinson Disease. Expand
Risk of hospitalization for myocardial infarction among users of rofecoxib, celecoxib, and other NSAIDs: a population-based case-control study.
Current and new users of rofecoxib and celecoxib had an elevated risk estimate for hospitalization for MI compared with nonusers of any category of nonaspirin NSAIDs, which indicates the need for further examination of the cardiovascular safety of all non aspirinNSAIDs. Expand
Tracheal cancer in Denmark: a nationwide study.
Tracheal cancers were rare and adenoid cystic carcinomas not as frequent as generally believed and a resectability rate of only 10% indicates a nihilistic attitude based on ignorance about surgical treatment of tracheal cancer. Expand
Comorbidity in elderly cancer patients in relation to overall and cancer-specific mortality
Colorectal and lung cancer was associated with increased comorbidity burden in the elderly compared with the background population and its influence on overall and cancer mortality was described. Expand
