The cancer risk in migrants from China and South-east Asia (Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia) resident in France has been compared to that observed in the local-born population, using mortality data from the period 1979-1985 and population data from the 1982 French census.
Risks were adjusted for important confounding factow such as social standing and area of residence.
Compared to local-born, South-east Asian migrants of one sex or of both sexes combined have higher risks of cancer of the nasopharynx, stomach, liver, gallbladder, lung (in females only), and cervix.
On the other hand, South-east Asian migrants have lower risks of cancer of the oral cavity, other pharynx, colon, rectum, larynx, lung (among males only), bladder, nervous system, breast and prostate.
