There is a global trend that the average onset age of many human complex diseases is decreasing, and the age of cancer patients becomes more spread out. The age effect on survival is nonlinear in practice and may have one or more important change‐points at which the trend of the effect can be very different before and after these threshold ages. Identification of these change‐points allows clinical researchers to understand the biologic basis for the complex relation between age and prognosis for optimal prognostic decision. This paper considers estimation of the potentially nonlinear age effect for general partly line...
