A tale of two cities – oesophageal cancer in Malawi and Scotland

  • T Crofts

Abstract



The high incidence of oesophageal cancer in both Scotland and Malawi can be attributed to a combination of environmental and lifestyle factors. The aim of this study is to give a perspective on the comparative epidemiology of oesophageal cancer in these two very different populations (Blantyre, Malawi and Aberdeen, Scotland).
