Abstract

We analyzed the role of reproductive factors on the risk of endometrial cancer using data from a case-control study conducted in Italy. Cases were 752 women with histologically confirmed endometrial cancer 2 trend 10.21). In comparison with women reporting no induced abortion, the ORs of endometrial cancer were 0.6 in women reporting 1 and 0.4 in those reporting 2 or more induced abortions. When considering parous women only, in comparison with women reporting their last birth 20 years before or longer, the ORs of endometrial cancer were 0,6 in those reporting their last birth 10-19 years before and 0.3 in those reporting their last birth
