Table 2 Univariate analyses for gender and delay. Univariate analyses for gender and delay for all cancers and after exclusion of gender-specific cancers, accounting for patient clustering within general practitioners. N in each column is the number of answers with complete data with the number of patients with long delays provided in brackets. Results are presented as odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (95%CIs).
