The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of cigarette smoking and alcohol use on the risk of endometrial cancer.
The impact of smoking on serum estrone, estradiol, and androstenedione levels also was examined.
This hospital-based case-control study included 168 women with endometrial carcinoma and 334 control women.
Women who were current smokers had a lower risk of endometrial cancer than did women who did not smoke (relative rate 0.69 ; 95% confidence interval 0.40-1.19), whereas women who were exsmokers and women who had never smoked had similar rates (relative rate 0.83 ; 95% confidence interval 0.46-1.48).
