Abstract

Written or oral questionnaires are often used when risk factors are studied in relation to cancer. However the validity of the answers to different questions are more seldom studied although such studies have been performed1,2,3 . Therefore there is a need to investigate the validity of some variables of common use in cancer epidemiology.
