Cancer is a major public health concern in many parts of the world. The genesis of cancer is multi-causal with ome well known causal factors for some sites of cancer. However, some cancer causes are not clear up to nowadays. There are substantial geographic variations in mortality of some sites of cancer in different regions of the world that could be in relation with some environmental factors and trace elements such as arsenic, chromium and cadmium. The review summarizes the recent studies on that matter.
