JAMA. 2019 May 21;321(19):1933-1934. doi: 10.1001/jama.2019.3076.

Abstract

This cancer epidemiology study uses SEER program data to describe trends in stage of incident colorectal cancer in adults aged 40-49 years between 1975 and 2015 to understand if apparent increases in incidence are due to earlier detection or true increases in risk.
