The risk of kidney cancer was examined in a cohort of people discharged from Danish hospitals from 1977-1987 with a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthrosis or backpain.
These individuals are presumably more or less regular users of mild analgesics.
A total of 155,554 people were identified.
The risk of cancer of the urinary tract was slightly increased [relative risk (RR)=1,31], almost exclusively because of an increased risk of renal cell carcinoma (RR=1.40).
The relative risk was higher in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis than among individuals with osteoarthrosis or backpain, and higher among women than men.
