Cancer incidence among musicians: 45 years of follow-up in four Nordic countries
CONCLUSION: Musicians have characteristics of indoor workers such as low incidence of lip cancer and high incidence of skin melanoma. The low incidence of lung cancer suggests that the prevalence of smoking among musicians is lower than in the general population while the elevated risk of alcohol-related cancer types suggest that drinking is likely more common among musicians. The cancer risk for all sites combined is still similar to that of the general population in the four countries studied.PMID:34162315 | DOI:10.1080/0284186X.2021.1924403 (Source: Acta Oncologica)
