Epidemiology and Cancers

Cancer epidemiology is the branch of epidemiology which is dealing with the disease cancer. Epidemiology is concerned with events that occur in populations: the primary units of concern are groups of people, not separate individuals. In fact, cancer epidemiological studies may focus on precursors of cancer. Observational epidemiological studies that show associations between risk factors and specific cancers mostly serve to generate hypotheses about potential interventions that could reduce cancer incidence or morbidity. Randomized controlled trials then test whether hypotheses generated by epidemiological studies and laboratory research actually result in reduced cancer incidence and mortality. In many cases, findings from observational epidemiological studies are not confirmed by randomized controlled trials. Some cancer researchers have argued that negative cancer clinical trials lack sufficient statistical power to discover a benefit to treatment. This may be due to fewer patients enrolled in the study than originally planned.
