Cigarette smoking, alcohol, tea and coffee consumption and pancreas cancer risk : a case-control study from Opole, Poland.
A population-based, case-control study of pancreas cancer was undertaken in Opole, Poland, within the framework of the SEARCH Programme of the International Agency for Research on Cancer: this is the first aetiological study of pancreas cancer reported from Poland where the reported mortality rate has doubled since 1963.
This study of pancreas cancer has provided some further supporting evidence of an association between increased pancreas risk with increasing levels of cigarette smoking.
The risk rose with increasing lifetime cigarette consumption with a trend which was weakly significant (p=0.061).
