Malignant neoplasms of the small intestine are relatively rare in the United States with an estimated 5,420 new cases diagnosed in 2005, which is less than 0.5% of the total number of new cancers diagnosed in this country. The projected number of new cases among men, 2,840, is similar to that in women, 2,580. This chapter reviews the epidemiology of cancers of the small intestine. Topics covered include classification, demographic patterns, host factors, environmental factors, and preventive measures.
