With increasing incidence and mortality, cancer is the leading cause of death in China and is a major public health problem. [] Key Method With high-quality data from an additional number of population-based registries now available through the National Central Cancer Registry of China, the authors analyzed data from 72 local, population-based cancer registries (2009-2011), representing 6.5% of the population, to estimate the number of new cases and cancer deaths for 2015.
Cancer incidence and mortality in China, 2014.
Heavy cancer burden and its disparities between area, sex and age group pose a major challenge to public health in China.

Most cases of liver cancer in China can be prevented through vaccination and more prevention efforts should be focused on high risk groups, especially in rural and western areas.
Cancer incidence and mortality: A cohort study in China, 2008–2013
It is found that cancer mortality coincided well between the authors' cohort and NCCR, while the incidence was much higher in their cohort, and the mortality‐to‐incidence ratio (MIR) was used to compare the differences of cancer burden between urban and rural areas of China.
Cancer incidence and mortality patterns in Luwan district of Shanghai during 2002-2011.
The results suggest that cancer incidence and mortality rates in Luwan district of Shanghai vary by age, sex, tumor type, and the increasing trends in cancer incidence call for effective prevention and control measures in the district.

Cancer incidence and mortality in Zhejiang Province, Southeast China, 2016: a population-based study
Lung cancer, female breast cancer, thyroid cancer, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, liver cancer, stomach cancer, and stomach cancer were the most common cancers in Zhejiang Province during 2016.
Cancer registration in China and its role in cancer prevention and control.


Report of Cancer Incidence and Mortality in China, 2012
The National Central Cancer Registry reports cancer statistics, providing basic data for policy making and scientific research, and cancer registry is playing an important role in cancer control.
The incidence and mortality of major cancers in China, 2012
Continuous cancer registry data provides basic information in cancer control programs, and the cancer burden in China is gradually increasing, both in urban and rural areas, in males and females.
Report of cancer incidence and mortality in China, 2010.
The coverage of cancer registration has rapidly increased in China in recent years and may reflect more accurate cancer burdens among populations living in different areas.
Annual report on status of cancer in China, 2011.
The coverage of cancer registration population had a greater increase than that in the last year and the data quality and representativeness are gradually improved, indicating cancer registry is playing an irreplaceable role.

The rising rates of lung cancer incidence (in both sexes and breast cancer) mean that there will be much greater increases in the number of cases at these two sites, and these two cancers are now the priorities for cancer prevention, early detection, and therapy in China.
Annual report on status of cancer in China, 2010.
The coverage of cancer registration population had a rapid increase and could reflect cancer burden in each area and population and play an irreplaceable role in cancer epidemic surveillance, evaluation of cancer control programs and making anti-cancer strategy.
Cancer survival in China, 2003–2005: A population‐based study
The poor population survival rates in China emphasize the urgent need for government policy changes and investment to improve health services and increasing access of health service in rural areas and providing basic health‐care to the disadvantaged populations will be essential for reducing this disparity in the future.
Cancer burden in China: a Bayesian approach
MI ratios are useful for estimating national cancer incidence in the absence of representative incidence or survival data, and expansion of China’s cancer registration network to be more representative of the country would improve the accuracy of cancer burden estimates.
Estimation of cancer cases and deaths attributable to infection in China
Infectious agents contributed more than one-quarter of the overall cancer number among population in China; further persistently effective vaccination and screening interventions and other preventive efforts against relevant infections should be initiated and strengthened.
Cancer statistics, 2015
The overall cancer death rate decreased from 215.1 (per 100,000 population) in 1991 to 168.7 in 2011, a total relative decline of 22%.
