Abstract

Harding S. The incidence of cancers among second generation Irish living in England and Wales. British Journal of Cancer 1998; 78 (7): 958-961.

The incidence of ovarian, cervical, lung and prostatic cancer was higher in second-generation Irish living in England and Wales than in all other persons in England and Wales. A higher incidence of ovarian cancer was not found in first-generation Irish. Differences in socioeconomic status did not explain these patterns.
