  1. Thyroid cancer epidemiology in England and Wales : time trends and geographical distribution.

    Article - En anglais

    Thyroid cancer incidence has been increasing in many countries, whereas mortality has been falling due to better survival.

    Radiation is the best-established risk factor and there has been concern that recent rises in incidence might be related to fallout radiation from atmospheric nuclear weapon tests.

    We examined thyroid cancer time trends and geographical distribution in England and Wales and possible interpretations of these.

    During 1962-84, there were significant increases in incidence (P<0.001) in each sex at ages under 45.
