Risk factors in endometrial carcinoma with special reference to the use of estrogens

Risk factors in endometrial carcinoma with special reference to the use of estrogens

Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica. Supplement 86: 1-119

After a review of the literature on the epidemiologic relationship between therapeutic hormonal use and endometrial carcinoma, an investigation was undertaken to assess the risk factors of this cancer among patients at the University Central Hospital of Turku, Finland. Patients treated for endometrial carcinoma between 1970 and 1976 were matched with control persons by age, weight, social class, menstrual cycle duration, age at menapause, surgical history and use of non-hormonal and hormonal drugs. No excess risk of endometrial carcinoma among estrogen users was found.
