In order to investigate etiologic distinctions among the anatomic sub-sites of the large bowel by sex, the relationship between large-bowel-cancer incidence and age at diagnosis, time period at diagnosis, and birth cohort was analyzed by anatomic sub-site and by sex, using data from the Connecticut Tumor Registry.
Included in the study were all incident large-bowel-cancer cases occurring between 1950 and 1984 among Connecticut residents aged 40 to 79.
Cancers of the large bowel were classified into 5 anatomic sub-sites: ascending colon (including cecum), transverse colon (including flexures), descending colon, sigmoid colon, and rectum (including rectosigmoid function, anal canal, and anus).
The data were fitted to log-linear age-period-cohort models.
