Cancer incidence in Estonians who took refuge in Sweden in 1944- 1945 has been compared with that in the total Swedish population and that among Estonians in Estonia in 19741985 using data from the Swedish and the Estonian countrywide population-based cancer registries.
The vast majority of the Estonian immigrants studied had been living in Sweden for 30 years when the follow-up with respect to cancer incidence started in this investigation.
In spite of the long residence in Sweden, differences in cancer incidence could be observed between these immigrants and the total Swedish population.
The age-standardized incidence of stomach cancer was higher in the Estonian migrants than in the total Swedish population (SIR=1.6 and 2.1 for males and females, respectively).
