Has screening had a significant influence on colorectal cancer incidence and mortality?
The mortality and incidence rates for cancer in the United States and Japan are compared. These reveal significant differences, especially when compared to cancers of the stomach and liver, which are more prevalent in Japan, and cancers of the lung, prostate, breast, endometrial, pancreas, and colon, all of which are significantly more common in the United States. But as Japan's way of life becomes more like Western culture, the differences are becoming less noticeable. The United States and Japan's historical data are presented, and they may help explain some of the variations in these diseases' incidence ratesAuthor(s): Balducci Rawla
