Epidemiology of breast cancer in nagasaki city japan special reference to atomic bomb survivors


Nagasaki Igakkai Zasshi 62(1): 52-57, 6
Epidemiology of breast cancer in nagasaki city japan special reference to atomic bomb survivors
We analysed the incidence rate of breast cancer and distribution of histologic types in Nagasaki City using Nagasaki Tumor Registry data during the period 1973-1982. 587 cases (299 exposed and 288 nonexposed) of breast cancer during the ten-year period have been registered. The age-adjusted relative risk was significantly higher in A-bomb survivors and showed a dose response relationship of the radiation. The difference in relative distribution of histologic type between A-bomb survivors and nonexposed persons was not significant.
