Example text

There is now evidence that some other viruses appear to be responsible for some other human cancers. For example, there is cancer that arises in the back of the nose, most common in Chinese who live in or near the Quantong province of China near Hong Kong. In these people, there is a high incidence of infection with the EpsteinBarr virus that probably plays a part in the development of this cancer. The malignant tumour Burkitt’s lymphoma, most common in certain parts of Africa and New Guinea, is also associated with a high incidence of infection with the Epstein-Barr or a similar virus.

However, the incidence of cancer of the lower oesophagus is now increasing in Western countries. This is often associated with a “Barrett’s ulcer”, an ulcer in the lower oesophagus likely to be associated with persistent gastric reflux. 3 Stomach People who have pernicious anaemia or chronic atrophic gastritis are six times more likely to develop stomach cancer than other people. People with gastric ulcer disease do have an increased risk of stomach cancer although this was long disputed by some gastroenterologists who believed that gastric lesions were either benign or malignant from their onset.

7 Sunshine Excessive ultraviolet light from sunshine is predominantly responsible for a greatly increased incidence of skin cancers, especially in fair-skinned people who live in sunny tropical or subtropical climates. UV light of solariums can be equally damaging in even shorter periods of time (Figs. 5). 8 Other Forms of Irradiation: X-Rays and Atomic Irradiation Increased incidence of cancers in the skin of the hands in people who held X-ray plates in their hands during the early use of X-ray machines was the first evidence that irradiation with X-rays would cause certain cancers.
