A case-control study of female bladder cancer.

Abstract

A case-control study was performed on 47 female bladder cancer patients and 94 female controls matched in age and geographic area. Twenty-five determinants of assumed importance were examined. The bivariate associations revealed a significantly increased relative risk (RR) for bladder cancer associated with use of tobacco, cheroot smoking and saccharin consumption, and some subgroups like never-smokers in combination with use of saccharin. The population attributable risk percentages were estimated. Through a multivariate logistic analysis of selected determinants cheroot consumption was the most pronounced independent variable.
