Cancer mortality during 1970-85 of immigrants from East and West Africa and the Caribbean to England and Wales is described.
Overall cancer mortality was raised in West African males (RR 1.38, 95% CI 1.25-1.54), and non-significantly raised in West African females (RR 1.14, 0.96-1.37) compared to mortality in the England and Wales-born population.
Much of the increased risk was due to very high rates of liver cancer in males (RR 31.6, 23.8-41.9), but rates were also raised for a wide range of other cancers in each sex.
Only lung and brain cancer had significantly decreased mortality.
