st: competing risks

Dear All

I have a query about competing risks and Cox regression. When
calculating cumulative incidence I understand it is important to
account for competing risks (using, for example, Enzo Coviello's
stcompet). For example, death is a competing risks for recurrence of a
cancer. But what if I am interested in potential explanatory factors
of cancer recurrence (e.g. age at diagnosis)? Would a Cox regression
analysis give me the correct answers or would I have to use the newly
implemented command stcrreg? Both models obviously work, but how
should I interpret the results? Thanks.
