  1. Fulltext. Occupation as a risk identifier for breast cancer.

    Article - En anglais



    Breast cancer mortality may be reduced if the disease is detected early through targeted screening programs.

    Current screening guidelines are based solely on a woman's age.

    Because working populations are accessible for intervention, occupational identification may be a way of helping to define and locate risk groups and target prevention.


    We used a database consisting of 2.9 million occupationally coded death certificates collected from 23 states between 1979 and 1987 to calculate age-adjusted, race-specific proportionate mortality ratios for breast cancer according to occupation.
