This study described the timing and magnitude of changes in prostate cancer incidence trends in the(More)
Background. Differentiated thyroid cancers (DTCs) are one of the most common and survivable cancers diagnosed in women. We examine factors associated with long-term survival and competing risks of death in women diagnosed with DTC under the age of 40 (<40) and aged 40 and older (40+). Methods. SEER data was used to identify DTCs diagnosed in women from 1975(More)

However, a proportion of cancers reported to registries have insufficient information to assign stage. The limited research addressing unstaged cancers has noted racial and socioeconomic disparities. Long-term incidence trends for(More)
BACKGROUND Early-life socioeconomic status (SES) may play a role in cancer risk in adulthood. However, measuring SES retrospectively presents challenges. Parental occupation on the birth certificate is a novel method of ascertaining early-life SES that has not been applied in cancer epidemiology. METHODS For a Baby-Boom cohort born from 1945-1959 in two(More)
