It has been suggested that informing people that they have been exposed to a carcinogenic chemical may have an adverse psychological impact on them and their families. This study assessed the impact on 140 randomly selected subjects from a population of 850 persons enrolled in a bladder cancer screening and notification program. Administration of psychological tests within four weeks and again six months after the medical screening showed no evidence of substantial psychopathology or family disruption. The investigators caution that additional studies in similar populations and work environments must be performed before any firm conclusions can be drawn. (KIE abstract)
