Worldwide variations in the lifetime probability of reproductive cancer in women: implications of best-case, worst-case, and likely-case assumptions about the effect of oral contraceptive use.
Contraception. 1992 Feb; 45(2):93-104.C

Abstract

Cancer incidence in countries representative of three patterns of reproductive cancer and age-specific mortality was used to estimate the effect of oral contraceptive use on the lifetime probability of reproductive cancer under three sets of assumptions about the effects of oral contraceptives. Under the set of assumptions considered likely, oral contraceptives were estimated to reduce or increase only slightly the lifetime probability of any reproductive cancer in each setting. Under worst-case assumptions, oral contraceptives were estimated to increase the lifetime probability of reproductive cancer only modestly in settings with low cancer rates and in settings with high rates of breast, ovarian, and endometrial cancer, but it might have a large impact on lifetime probability of reproductive cancer in settings with high cervical cancer rates. Under best-case assumptions, oral contraceptives were estimated to decrease the lifetime probability of reproductive cancer in each setting; this reduction was estimated to be greatest in settings where endometrial and ovarian cancer incidence are high.
