    Abstract

    Analysis of population-based registry data (n = 7393) showed that more deprived colon cancer patients had lower risk of the mucin-producing adenocarcinoma subtype, proximal subsite (to the descending colon), and no greater risk of high-grade tumours. Tumour factors therefore appear unlikely to account for socioeconomic gradients in survival. © 2003 Cancer Research UK.
