To determine if the excess of leukaemia and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in Seascale is restricted to those born in the parish and whether it might be explained by the postulated relation with paternal preconceptional radiation.
Design-Comparison, separately for those born in the parish and those born elsewhere, of the numbers of these malignancies observed in Seascale with those expected on the basis of reference rates for England and Wales.
Details of paternal radiation levels were sought for each case.
Setting-The parish of Seascale in west Cumbria.
Subjects-Residents of Seascale below age 25 years in the years 1951-91.
