Main content

A new large Nordic population-based study found no evidence for associations between women’s reproductive history and colorectal adenocarcinoma in parous women. The study is based on data from birth and cancer registries in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, and included more than 22,000 cancer cases. Professor Tone Bjørge is first author of the paper.
