Cholecystectomy and colorectal cancer : evidence from a cohort study on diet and cancer.
The association between cholecystectomy and subsequent risk for colorectal carcinoma was investigated in a perspective cohort study on diet and cancer (n=120,852), which is being conducted in the Netherlands from 1986 onwards among 120,852 men and women, aged 55 to 69.
After a follow-up period of 3.3 years, 478 incident cases of colorectal cancer (258 men and 220 women) were identified in the cohort, 64 of whom reported at baseline to have undergone previous gall-bladder surgery (21 men and 43 women).
