Abstract

We conducted a nationwide, retrospective cohort study assessing the risk of cancer in VTE patients diagnosed in Scotland in 1982-2000. Significantly elevated risks of cancer were sustained for 2 years after VTE diagnosis, most notably for ovarian tumours and lymphomas. Younger patients were at an increased relative risk from this association.
