Evaluation of gynecological tumors in the atomic bomb survivors

Technical Report:

Abstract

During a series of routine examinations at ABCC, 1785 exposed women (under 2000 meters from the bomb hypocenter and with major acute radiation symptoms) and 1802 control subjects received physical examinations. Of this group, less than 50% of the married patients accepted pelvic examination as part of the routine physical examination, so that 838 exposed women and 603 controls were examined. Carcinoma of the cervix was the most common neoplasm encountered. Biopsy or autopsy tissue confirmation of the diagnosis was obtained in 9 exposed and in 2 control subjects. When cases, clinically evident but unconfirmed by tissue were added, the total was increased to 11 cases in the exposed and 7 cases in the control. Since fewer control cases accepted pelvic examination, the incidence does not appear increased in the exposed group. (The age of onset of cervical carcinoma was not significantly different between control and radiation-exposed patients.) Only scattered pelvic neoplasms of other types were encountered, but one patient with ovarian thecoma, a tumor reported to be radiation-induced in animals, was seen in the exposed group. These findings from a survey examination emphasize the importance of routine pelvic examination in the detection of major disease, particularly carcinoma of the  More>>
