  1. Cancer of the prostate in Norway 1957-1991 : A descriptive study.

    Article - En anglais

    The incidence and mortality of prostate cancer from 1957 to 1991 were studied in the Cancer Registry of Norway.

    The age-adjusted incidence rate increased from 26.3 to 46.6 per 100 000 person-years during the period, and more than 2000 cases are now registered yearly.

    The increase tends to be higher in the younger age groups, 50-59 years, and among the oldest, 90+years.

    An increase was also found in cause-specific mortality, signifying a real increase in incidence over time.

    There is a slight urban dominance in incidence of prostate cancer.

    Autopsy findings account for less than 1.7% of the total.

    The histo-and cytological verification rate reached 94% in 1987-1991 and the percentage of localised cases was 68.4%. The median age at diagnosis in 1987-1991 was 75.1 years.

    Data on stage at time of diagnosis, histological differentiation and survival, reflect a small influence of earlier diagnosis.

    Model analysis revealed no particular birth cohort effect, either on incidence or on mortality.
