Recent trends in the incidence of renal cancer, stratified by histology, have not been reported.
This study utilized data from the Connecticut Tumor Registry (CTR), the oldest population-based cancer registry in the United States, to establish time trends in the incidence of adenocarcinoma and transitional cell carcinoma of the kidney and urinary tract.
All 10,209 incident cases of renal cancer reported to the CTR between 1935 and 1989 were analyzed.
Regression modelling was employed to determine the effects of age, period, and birth cohort on incidence rates, and to project future trends.
The incidence rate of adenocarcinoma increased in females from 0.7/100,000 in 1935-39, to 4.2/100,000 in 1985-89 ; and in males, from 1.6/100,000 in 1935-39, to 9.6/100,000 in 1985-89.
