Environmental factors and breast and prostatic cancer.
TLDR
Differences in hormone profiles in cancer patients and in patients with an increasing number of potential risk factors together with differences n life style and diet suggest a relationship between diet, hormonal metabolism, and these endocrine-associated cancers. Expand
Epidemiology of cancer of the prostate
TLDR
No significant relationship was found to socioeconomic status, marital status, fertility, social habits, previous diseases, weight, height, hair distribution, or laboratory data. Expand
Review: Prostate cancer epidemiology
TLDR
Despite the public health importance of prostate cancer, it has received only moderate epidemiologic study and the etiologic importance of diet, endocrine function, genetic susceptibility, and other possible determinants of prostrate cancer risk is uncertain. Expand
Family history and the risk of breast cancer.
TLDR
The risk of breast cancer for a woman was higher if her first-degree relative had unilateral rather than bilateral breast cancer or had breast cancer detected at a younger rather than older age. Expand

TLDR
Environmentally-related variables strongly support the potential viral etiology for prostatic cancer. Expand
Sexual factors in the epidemiology of cancer of the prostate.
TLDR
The most striking findings relate to sexuality and in particular extra-marital activity; the engagement in sexual relationships with multiple partners ; greater sexual drive and the greater frequency of venereal disease among the cancer group of patients. Expand
Characteristics of familial colon cancer in a large population data base
TLDR
The results suggest that factors other than those that predispose to the rare syndromes are important in determining familial risk for common colon cancers, and that the presence of these two clinical features should not suggest the absence of familial risk of colorectal cancer. Expand
The accuracy of patient reports of a family history of cancer.
TLDR
The effect of the corresponding levels of error should be estimated in epidemiologic studies and should motivate clinicians to seek medical records in situations where a family history of cancer influences clinical management. Expand
Concerning a familial association between breast cancer and both prostatic and uterine malignancies
TLDR
The familial incidence and distribution of all malignancies for a group of 145 breast cancer patients were determined and compared to that of 139 randomized control patients and significantly higher incidences of only uterine, prostatic, and breast cancer were found among both maternal and paternal relatives of the Breast cancer patients.

Familial factors affecting prostatic cancer risk and plasma sex‐steroid levels
TLDR
Preliminary data suggest that the metabolic clearance rate of testosterone and the conversion ratio of testosterone to estradiol are relatively high in probands and that plasma androgen values in families with prostatic cancer cluster in the lower range of normal, and plasma sex‐steroid content is more similar in each brothers with or without prostaticcancer than among nonbrothers.
