Abstract

Cancer incidence was assessed among a cohort of 10,923 male coronary patients in Israel screened for participation in a secondary prevention trial and compared with national cancer incidence rates. Higher total and age-specific incidence rates of cancer were observed among male coronary patients than among the Israeli male population, but this excess was limited to cancers of the lung, bladder, and colon.
