Abstract

Subsite-specific incidence rates of colorectal cancer vary considerably by age, gender, and race. This study used the largest aggregation of cancer incidence data in the United States to examine subsite-specific incidence rates of colorectal cancer and the relation of stage of disease to anatomic subsites by race, gender, and age group. Data on the incidence of invasive colorectal cancer were obtained from 28 population-based central cancer registries. Age-specific and age-adjusted rates and stage distributions were analyzed by subsite, race, and gender. Differentials in stage of disease by subsites indicate a need for a targeted effort at early detection of cancer in the proximal colon. Risk factors and higher risk populations for colorectal cancers in each subsite need to be studied further to guide actions for improving the efficacy of screening.
