  1. Intra-uterine contraception and the risk of endometrial cancer.

    Article - En anglais

    Despite the increasing world-wide popularity of contraceptive intra-uterine devices (IUDs), their potential long-term effects on the risk of developing endometrial carcinoma have been poorly studied.

    This paper reports on the relationship between intra-uterine contraception and endometrial cancer by analyzing epidemiological data from a large, multicenter, population-based, case-control study of epithelial endometrial cancer.

    Cases were 437 women, 20 to 54 years of age, with histologically confirmed epithelial endometrial cancer ascertained through 6 population-based cancer registries in the United States.

    Controls were 3200 women selected at random from the populations of these areas.
