Epidemiology, Risk Factors and Diagnosis of Small Bowel Adenocarcinoma

Abstract

Adenocarcinomas of the small intestine are rare tumors but their incidence is increasing. There is a slight male predominance. The median age at diagnosis is the 6th decade. The most frequent primary location is the duodenum. There is no clearly identified environmental risk factor, but adenocarcinomas of the small intestine are associated in almost 20% of cases with predisposing diseases (Crohn’s disease, Lynch syndrome, familial adenomatous polyposis, Peutz–Jeghers syndrome and celiac disease).
