Comments

All rates except as noted are per 100,000 men and women age 50 and over and are age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. standard million population by 5-year age groups.

Regional stage is defined as a neoplasm that has extended beyond the limits of the organ of origin, either directly into surrounding organs or tissues or into regional lymph nodes. Distant stage is defined as a neoplasm that has spread to parts of the body remote from the primary tumor, either by direct extension or by discontinuous metastasis. For more information on staging, see Ries LAG, Eisner MP, Kosary CL, Hankey BF, Miller BA, Clegg L, Mariotto A, Fay MP, Feuer EJ, Edwards BK (eds).
