Global cancer statistics 2018: GLOBOCAN estimates of incidence and mortality worldwide for 36 cancers in 185 countries
This article provides a status report on the global burden of cancer worldwide using the GLOBOCAN 2018 estimates of cancer incidence and mortality produced by the International Agency for Research on
Global Cancer Statistics 2020: GLOBOCAN Estimates of Incidence and Mortality Worldwide for 36 Cancers in 185 Countries
TLDR
The global cancer burden is expected to be 28.4 million cases in 2040, a 47% rise from 2020, with a larger increase in transitioning versus transitioned countries due to demographic changes, although this may be further exacerbated by increasing risk factors associated with globalization and a growing economy.
Cancer incidence and mortality worldwide: Sources, methods and major patterns in GLOBOCAN 2012
TLDR
The sources and methods used in compiling the national cancer incidence and mortality estimates are reviewed, and the key results by cancer site and in 20 large “areas” of the world are described.
Cancer Incidence in Five Continents
TLDR
The aim of this study was to establish a database of histological groups and to provide a level of consistency and quality of data that could be applied in the design of future registries.
Cancer incidence in five continents.
Estimating the global cancer incidence and mortality in 2018: GLOBOCAN sources and methods
TLDR
The sources and methods used in compiling the cancer statistics in 185 countries are reviewed, and uncertainty intervals are now provided for the estimated sex‐ and site‐specific all‐ages number of new cancer cases and cancer deaths.
Global patterns and trends in colorectal cancer incidence and mortality
TLDR
Pattern and trends in CRC incidence and mortality correlate with present human development levels and their incremental changes might reflect the adoption of more western lifestyles, pointing towards widening disparities and an increasing burden in countries in transition.
