Several studies report varying incidence rates of cancer in subsites of the colorectum, as an increasing proportion appears to develop in the proximal colon. Varying incidence trends together with biological differences between the colorectal segments raise questions of whether lifestyle factors impact on the risk of cancer differently at colorectal subsites. We provide an updated overview of the risk of cancer at different colorectal subsites (proximal colon, distal colon, and rectum… Expand
