AbstractBackground and Aim: The incidence of colorectal cancer (CC) is increasing in many Asian countries, but decreasing in western countries. The present study examined the local incidence of CC in the past few decades. Methods: A population based study, using data from Hong Kong (HK) Cancer Registry, was carried out to examine the trends of CC in different age groups in HK. Comparison with other countries was made. Results: The crude rate of CC in HK increased from 29.6/100 000 in 1983 to 57.1/100 000 in 2006. Age standardized rate (ASR) increased by less than 20%. It was markedly smaller than the 190% increase in crude rate. ASR progressively increased in males. In females, ASR peaked in 1994 and declined in the last decade. In most countries, the risk of CC was higher and increasing in males, but stable or decreasing in females. With respect to age, increasing risk was noted in males above 60 years old and females above 70 years old. However, a declining rate was noted in those below 50 years old. The decrease was over 40% in the 30-34 years group over the past two decades. Conclusions: Increasing incidence of CC in HK was mostly in the older and male population, but not in the younger age group. © 2010 Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Foundation and Blackwell Publishing Asia Pty Ltd.
