Our aim was to estimate the association between smoking history, alcohol and tobacco smoking and tumours of the large intestine.
Associations were studied at an early stage of colorectal cancer in order to avoid bias in the information.
In order to estimate the link between adenoma and cancer the exposures were analysed separately for cancer and adenoma patients.
The study was conducted as a case-control study within a randomized trial for colorectal cancer among males and females aged 45-74 years.
Cases initially included all individuals with a positive Haemoccult-II test in three screens and an age- and sex-matched reference group was selected from the test negatives.
