A population-based case-control study of the association of diet and other factors and thyroid cancer was conducted between 1980 and 1987 on Oahu, Hawaii.
Study participants included 51 men and 140 women with thyroid cancer, and 113 male and 328 female controls matched on age (+-5 years) and sex.
A significant, positive monotonic dose-response relation of weight in late adulthood (5 years prior to interview) and the risk for thyroid cancer was found for men and women.
