  1. a Both incidence and prevalence proportions reported as /1,000 patients at risk. Incidence period was 3 months after the date of cancer diagnosis (cancer patients) or sham date (non-cancer patients). Prevalence period was 36 months before the date of cancer diagnosis (cancer patients) or sham date (non-cancer patients).
