Cancer Incidence and Mortality Patterns Among Chinese Americans 35 The sex-site-specific rate ratios in Chinese Americans relative to NH whites based on incidence closely resemble those based on mortality (Fig. 1). Incidence Trends and Age Patterns In the following, we examine the age-adjusted (1960 world standard population) incidence trends and age-specific incidence patterns for the top three most common cancers in Chinese Americans, as well as cancers that show higher risk among Chinese Americans than US whites.

Chinese in LA and Shanghai and US whites displayed very similar age-specific risk patterns (Figs. 5c and 6c). Risk of CRC is strongly associated with familial and lifestyle factors [60–64]. Economic development and adoption of Western lifestyle have resulted in the rising incidence of CRC and other cancers in China [65, 66]. Screening has been credited as having considerable impact on the steady reduction in CRC incidence and mortality in the USA since the late 1980s [67]. Differences in access to CRC screening have contributed to the risk disparities among different population groups stratified by racial and socioeconomic characteristics [68–70].
