The male/female ratio for adenomas is always higher than the male/female ratio for cancers in all age groups, especially in young people. For instance in the C6te d'Or the incidence of large bowel cancer was similar among men and women before the age of 60, whereas there was a slight male predominance in older people (9). For diagnosed adenomas there was a male predominance whatever the age with a sex ratio close to 2 in all age groups. These data suggest that if it is supposed that most carcinomas arise from a preexisting adenoma then the rate of transformation of adenoma to carcinoma must be higher in women than in men at the same age.
