RD-staging provided the greatest stage data completeness and alignment to AJCC-TNM for prostate cancers, followed by breast, then melanoma and lung cancers.

The likelihood of prostate cancer stage being recorded as “unknown” in the NSW Cancer Registry is influenced by the use of hospital cancer services, socioeconomic status and facility type.

Although differences in stage of diagnosis for prostate, breast and colorectal cancers between farm residents and rural non-farm or urban counterparts were not statistically significant, farm men may be at higher risk of later stage colorectal cancer diagnosis.
