A longitudinal study of altogether 1462 women aged 38 to 60 years started in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1968-69.
Based on information from the population study and from the Swedish Cancer Registry 35 women had a history of malignant disease when initially examined in 1968-69.
During a 12-year follow-up period a total of 79 malignant tumours developed in 73 women.
A comparison was made between the 1988 Cancer Registry listing and the observations made in the population study.
All but one out of 103 cases (99%) were registered in the Cancer Registry and all but one (99%) in the population study.
