APC: annual percentage change, CI: confidence interval, moder/poor/undifferentiated: moderately, poorly, or undifferentiated.
1Data are from 46 population-based cancer registries that participate in the National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) and/or the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program and meet high quality data criteria. These registries cover 93.5% US population for 2004–2007.
2Rates are per 100,000 men and are age-adjusted to the 2000 US standard population.
3Sum of counts is less than total due to missing information on stage.
