  1. Incidence pattern of thyroid cancer in Norway : influence of birth cohort and time period.

    Article - En anglais

    The incidence of thyroid cancer in Norway increased about 2-fold for both sexes during the period 1955 to 1989 (4691 cases).

    In the last 5-year period, however, a decline was observed, especially among females.

    The ratio between age-adjusted incidence rates in Northern Norway compared with Southern Norway was 1.6 for females and 1.5 for males, and the incidence pattern during the period was similar in the 2 regions.

    The analysis of age-cohort-period models showed a strong cohort effect in both sexes.

    The reason for this is not clear, although radiation treatment during childhood and dietary habits may possibly be involved.
