Abstract

Numerous case-control studies have suggested a link between the oral contraceptive pill and liver cancer. The secular trends in liver cancer mortality rates for England and Wales from 1975 to 1992 were examined to determine whether an effect of the pill was apparent. Liver cancer mortality has remained constant in women in the age groups that have had major exposure to the pill.
