Posted October 06, 2018 12:28:16 A new study from the University of Florida has found that the risk of getting a cancer diagnosis depends on how many patients a doctor sees.
In a study of patients with cancer and those with no known history of the disease, researchers found that patients with a history of cancer and high rates of cancer diagnosis were more likely to have a low-grade cancer, a form of cancer that had a more aggressive and aggressive progression.
“If a patient has high cancer risk, we’re likely to see them get treated more aggressively, but if they have low cancer risk and they don’t have any known risk factors, we see them less often,” said lead author Dr. Robert M. Johnson, the lead author of the study published online in the American Journal of Public Health.
The researchers looked at the risk that people with cancer diagnosed in the first few months of their life were diagnosed.
People with more than five years of history of diagnosed cancer had a 1.7-fold greater chance of being diagnosed with advanced-stage cancer compared with those with less than five months of cancer history.
“In the study, the average risk for people with a cancer-free diagnosis was 9.5 per cent, while people with no history of chronic cancer were only at 4.7 per cent,” Johnson said.
“This was more than double the risk for those with a diagnosis of a benign or low-risk tumor.”
Dr. Donald R. Kiehl, the study’s lead author and a professor of medicine at the University at Buffalo, said there is a great deal of variation among the types of cancers people get, and that “the more cancers people have, the more likely they are to get a cancer.”
We don’t know exactly how much of that variance is due to the nature of the cancer, but it’s a large part of the risk.
“The study was done in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, the University Hospitals of Cleveland, and the University College Cork.
The findings were based on data from the National Cancer Institute’s National Cancer Statistics Program (NCISP), which includes information on cancer diagnoses made in more than 8 million people aged 16 and older in the U.S. The NCISP does not include data from people who have not been diagnosed with cancer, or cancer patients who have received a non-diagnostic diagnosis but are in remission.
The study is part of a larger study looking at the relationship between cancer and age.
Previous studies have found that older people are at higher risk for cancer, and also that people who are more likely than others to be diagnosed with the disease are more often in need of a doctor’s care.
In addition to the NCISB, the UF study included data from state and federal databases.
The Mayo Clinic is the primary care provider of cancer care in the United States.
