Industrial Injuries Advisory Council (2008) Testicular cancer in fire fighters , London, UK Corporate Document Services 7pp. (Position Paper, 21).

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


This position paper details the Industrial Injuries Advisory Council’s (IIAC) review of
an association between testicular cancer and fire fighting. To recommend to
Ministers that a disease be added to the list of prescribed diseases for which
Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (IIDB) is payable, the Council generally seeks
robust epidemiological (population-based) evidence that the risk of the disease is
more than doubled in relation to certain occupational exposures. Studies have noted
an increased risk of testicular cancer in fire fighters, but it is not clearly greater than
doubled. The Council concludes that, at present, there is insufficient evidence to
recommend prescription for testicular cancer in fire fighters.
