As primary duodenal adenocarcinoma is rare, the prognostic factors of this disease remain insufficiently explored, especially in China. We identified postoperative duodenal adenocarcinoma patients at a Chinese double-center (from 2006 to 2016) or who were registered with the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database (from 2004 to 2014). Clinicopathological features and significant prognostic factors for cancer-specific survival (CSS) were reviewed and analyzed by using univariate and multivariate Cox proportional hazards regression...

BACKGROUND: Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is an important predictor for overall survival (OS). To date, no studies compared associations between HRQOL assessed before and after a cancer diagnosis for OS. Our objectives were to (1) investigate associations between HRQOL changes and OS and (2) identify the best HRQOL assessment time point to predict OS. METHODS: We used the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results linked with the Medicare Health Outcomes Survey data...

Approximately one third of cancer patients suffer from comorbid mood disorders that are associated with increased cost and poorer outcomes. The majority of patients with multiple myeloma (MM) are treated with corticosteroids; as many as three fourths of those taking corticosteroids develop neuropsychiatric complications, likely increasing morbidity and cost of care. MM patients diagnosed between 1991 and 2010 and reported in the Surveillance Epidemiology, and End Results-Medicare database were characterized as MM-Only, MM+Psychiatric (any psychiatric condition, preexisting or post-MM), or MM+Depression (depression as the only psychiatric diagnosis, preexisting or post-MM)...

The role of local treatment in patients with oligometastatic non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a subject of ongoing debate. This study assessed the survival impact of combined surgery to the primary tumor and metastatic disease in the management of metastatic NSCLC. Stage IV NSCLC patients at presentation, diagnosed from 2004 to 2013 were identified from the SEER (Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results) database. Propensity-matched analysis was performed considering baseline characteristics (age, gender, race, histology, TN stage, and site of metastases)...

BACKGROUND: Although the benefit of chemoradiation over radiation therapy alone has been shown in randomized trials for stage II to III squamous cell of the anus, this benefit is not clear for patients with stage I cancer. Nevertheless, most societal recommendations endorse chemoradiation for patients with stage I squamous cell carcinoma of the anus despite the lack of proven benefit and potential increase in toxicity. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether outcomes are improved with the addition of chemotherapy versus radiation alone for stage I squamous cell carcinoma of the anus...

BACKGROUND: Multidisciplinary care is critical for the successful treatment of stage III colorectal cancer, yet receipt of adjuvant chemotherapy remains unacceptably low. Peer support, or exposure to others treated for colorectal cancer, has been proposed as a means to improve patient acceptance of cancer care. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of our study was to evaluate the effect of peer support on the attitudes of patients with colorectal cancer toward chemotherapy and their adherence to it...

PURPOSE: Although a minimum of 12 lymph nodes (LNs) has been recommended for colorectal cancer, there remains considerable debates for rectal cancer patients. Inadequacy of examined LNs would lead to under-staging, and inappropriate treatment as a consequence. We describe statistical tool that allows an estimate the probability of false-negative nodes. METHODS: A total of 26,778 adenocarcinoma rectum cancer patients with tumour stage (T stage) 1-3, diagnosed between 2004 and 2013, who did not receive neoadjuvant therapies and had at least one histologically assessed LN, were extracted from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Squamous cell carcinoma of the retromolar trigone (RMT SCC) is a relatively uncommon primary site for oral cavity malignancy. However, given its proximity to the mandible and buccal mucosa, RMT SCC typically exhibits early invasion and generally presents at an advanced stage. Large-sample studies are needed to assess the epidemiology and clinical outcomes of this tumor. Our aim was to describe the determinants of survival in patients with RMT SCC. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study...

Background: Gallbladder cancer is a rare malignancy, yet it has a dismal prognosis. Overall survival has improved in all races/ethnicities except Hispanics and blacks. Despite improvements in gallbladder cancer management, it is not clear whether racial/ethnic disparities in stage at diagnosis and treatments exist that could potentially be the source of survival disparities. The purpose of this study was to examine race/ethnicity-specific trends in the stage of disease and receipt of treatments among adult gallbladder cancer patients in the US...

INTRODUCTION: Cancer end-of-life care and associated racial-ethnic disparities have been in focus during the last few years due to concerns regarding subjective care variations and poor quality of care. Given the high mortality rate and disease burden of lung cancer, end-of-life care quality is particularly crucial for this disease. This study uses previously validated measures and examines racial-ethnic disparities in lung cancer end-of-life care quality. METHODS: This study involves retrospective analysis of patients ≥66 years, who were diagnosed with stage I-IV lung cancer, and who died on or before December 31, 2013, using the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Result-Medicare data from 1991-2013...

BACKGROUND: The consensus is that a minimum of 12 lymph nodes should be analyzed at colectomy for colon cancer. However, right colon cancer and left colon cancer have different characteristics, and this threshold value for total number of lymph nodes retrieved may not be universally applicable. METHODS: The data of 63,243 patients with colon cancer treated between 2004 and 2012 were retrieved from the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database...
