Risk factors for renal-cell carcinoma, the most frequent type of kidney cancer, remains enigmatic.
Time trends in incidence and changes in the regional distribution of this cancer are suggestive of environmental risk factors.
This study reports on occupational risk factors for renal-cell carcinoma in Denmark.
In a population-based study, 365 persons with histologically verified renal-cell carcinoma and 396 referents were interviewed.
Information was collected on occupation, education, and occupational exposure to a number of suspected substances, including hydrocarbons, asbestos, and radiation.
Risk of renal-cell carcinoma was found to be associated with employment as a truck driver, exposure to gasoline, other hydrocarbons, and insecticides and herbicides.
