Abstract

We assessed incidence and mortality of colorectal cancer (CRC) at various ages among women and men in 38 European countries. The ages at which defined levels of incidence and mortality were reached varied between 9 and 17 years between countries. This variation requires consideration in the definition of screening guidelines.
