Increasing incidence of both major histological types of esophageal carcinomas among men in Sweden.
Although a rare tumor form, there is evidence that the incidence of esophageal adenocarcinomas is increasing in Western Europe and the US.
The aim of this nationwide population-based study was to describe the secular trends in the incidence rates of adenocarcinoma and squamous-cell carcinoma of the esophagus over a 28-year period from 1960 to 1987.
The Swedish Cancer Registry, complete to more than 95%, was used to identify the cases.
The percentage verified by histology rose from 89% to 98%. The age-standardized incidence rate of adenocarcinoma increased in males from 0.5 per 105 in 1960-63 to 1.1 per 105 in 1984-87, corresponding to an average annual increase of 1.5%.
