This chapter attempts to integrate experimental models of carcinogenesis and the life course approach into a common etiological framework. It presents a brief overview of trends in the most common cancer sites in relation to potential risk factors. Emphasis is given to breast and testicular cancers, sites for which there is evidence that their origins can be traced as far back as the prenatal period.

Keywords:   cancer risk, life course, risk factors, breast cancer, testicular cancer, cancer trends
