Purpose Family history of colorectal cancer may be a phenotype for numerous genetic mutations which increase colorectal cancer risk and may affect survival after diagnosis. We examined the relationship between self-reported first-degree family history of colorectal cancer and survival. Methods We identified female Wisconsin residents ages 20–74 with a new diagnosis of invasive colorectal cancer from two population-based case–control studies; 1,469 women were interviewed. Follow-up averaged 7.9… CONTINUE READING
