Methods by which human exposure to carcinogens has been detected are described, including immunoassay techniques, physico-chemical methods and post-labelling assays. A number of studies are then discussed in which molecular markers are being used to assess exposure to environmental, occupational and iatrogenic carcinogens, and to relate this information to the type or incidence of cancers that occur.
