Epidemiology of gastric cancer.
Diverging trends in the incidence of gastric cancer by tumor location suggest that they may represent two diseases with different etiologies, and strategies for primary prevention are discussed.
Nationwide Trends in the Performance of Inpatient Hysterectomy in the United States
The number of inpatient hysterectomies performed in the United States has declined substantially over the past decade, and the median number of hysteretomies per hospital has declined likewise by more than 40%.

Younger or older age, lumpectomy (v mastectomy), and comorbidities were associated with earlier discontinuation, while Asian race, being married, earlier year at diagnosis, receipt of chemotherapy or radiotherapy, and longer prescription refill interval wereassociated with completion of 4.5 years of therapy.
Epidemiology of upper gastrointestinal malignancies.
Understanding the epidemiology and etiologies of esophageal and gastric carcinomas will lead to the development of interventions for screening and prevention in high-risk populations.

Given the differences in anatomic and geographic location among histological subtypes, much may be learned from well-designed, histology-specific epidemiological and genetic studies of cancer of the small bowel.
Early discontinuation and non-adherence to adjuvant hormonal therapy are associated with increased mortality in women with breast cancer
Both early discontinuation and non-adherence to HT were common and associated with increased mortality, and interventions to improve continuation of and adherence to HT may be critical to improve BC survival.
Robotically assisted vs laparoscopic hysterectomy among women with benign gynecologic disease.
The use of robotically assisted hysterectomy for benign gynecologic disorders increased substantially between 2007 and 2010, and the use of robotic technology resulted in substantially more costs.
Handheld cellular telephone use and risk of brain cancer.
The data suggest that use of handheld cellular telephones is not associated with risk of brain cancer, but further studies are needed to account for longer induction periods, especially for slow-growing tumors with neuronal features.
Characteristics of adult celiac disease in the USA: results of a national survey
Patients with celiac disease in the United States have a long duration of symptoms and consider their diagnosis delayed, and improved quality of life after diagnosis is common, with an increased risk of developing small intestine malignancies.

The risk of perforation after colonoscopy is approximately double that after sigmoidoscopy, but this difference appears to be decreasing and should be useful to clinicians making screening and diagnostic decisions for individual patients and to policy officials setting guidelines for colorectal cancer screening programs.
