Occupation and cancers of the lung and bladder : a case-control study in Bombay.
Associations between occupation and cancers of the lung (n=246) and bladder (n=153) were examined in a case-control study.
Controls (n=212) comprised cases of oral (75%) and pharyngeal cancers (13%) and non-neoplastic oral diseases (12%) at the same hospital.
Only males were studied.
A personal interview was conducted and a lifetime occupational history and information on demographic and relevant confounding factors including tobacco use were obtained.
For lung cases, comparing'ever'employed with « never » employed in a particular occupation, significantly elevated risks (adjusted for smoking) were found for textile workers (odds ratio [OR]=1.99, 95% confidence interval [Cl]:1.3-3.6) and cooks (OR=4.48, 95% Cl:1.2-16.9).
