  1. Risk factors for renal cell carcinoma in Denmark : role of medication and medical history.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Several recent studies of risk factors for renal cell carcinoma have indicated that use of diuretics may increase risk of this cancer.

    It has also been suggested that use of weak analgesics, which are known to increase risk of cancer of the renal pelvis and ureter, may also be associated with an increased risk of renal cell carcinoma-the most frequent type of kidney cancer.

    Methods

    A population-based case-control study was undertaken to investigate the role of diuretics, other anti-hypertensive drugs, analgesics, and medical history in the aetiology of renal cell carcinoma.
