Global cancer statistics
Statistics are given for global patterns of cancer incidence and mortality for males and females in 23 regions of the world.
Global Cancer Statistics, 2002
TLDR
There are striking variations in the risk of different cancers by geographic area, most of the international variation is due to exposure to known or suspected risk factors related to lifestyle or environment, and provides a clear challenge to prevention.
Genetic Pathways to Glioblastoma
TLDR
A population-based study on glioblastomas in the Canton of Zurich, Switzerland, suggests that the acquisition of TP53 mutations in these glooblastoma subtypes occurs through different mechanisms.
Estimates of the worldwide incidence of 25 major cancers in 1990
TLDR
There are large differences in the relative frequency of different cancers by world area, and tobacco smoking and chewing are almost certainly the major preventable causes of cancer today.
Estimating the world cancer burden: Globocan 2000
TLDR
GLOBOCAN 2000 updates the previous data-based global estimates of incidence, mortality and prevalence to the year 2000 and uses a “databased” approach, rather different from themodeling method used in other estimates.
Estimates of the worldwide mortality from 25 cancers in 1990
TLDR
It is estimated that 20% of all cancer deaths (1 million) could be prevented by eliminating tobacco smoking, and the potential impact of preventive practices is indicated.
Overweight as an avoidable cause of cancer in Europe
TLDR
Excess body mass accounts for 5% of all cancers in the European Union, 3% in men and 6% in women, corresponding to 27,000 male and 45,000 female cancer cases yearly, and can be avoided by halving the prevalence of overweight and obese people in Europe.
Prevalence of Opisthorchis viverrini infection and incidence of cholangiocarcinoma in Khon Kaen, Northeast Thailand
TLDR
There was a positive association between prevalence of OV infection and incidence of cholangiocarcinoma at the population level, and the cancer registry is an appropriate tool for disease monitoring in small areas.
Estimates of the worldwide incidence of eighteen major cancers in 1985
TLDR
The annual incidence rates and numbers of new cases of 18 different cancers have been estimated for the year 1985 in 24 areas of the world and tobacco smoking and chewing are almost certainly the major prevent able causes of cancer today.
