  1. Social, behavioural and medical factors in the aetiology of testicular cancer : results from the UK study.

    Article - En anglais

    Although many risk factors have been proposed for the aetiology of testicular cancer, only a history of cryptorchidism is well established.

    All risk factors previously suggested have been explored in this study.

    This population-based case-control study was carried out in nine health regions in England and Wales and included 794 men, aged 15-49 years, diagnosed with a testicular germ cell tumour between 1 January 1984 and 30 September 1986, each with an individually age-matched control.

    Cases and controls were interviewed and data were abstracted from their general practitioner notes.

    Participation rates for cases and controls were 92.0% and 83.1% respectively.

    Where possible the mother of each interviewed man was sent a postal questionnaire for self-completion.
