Estimates of the worldwide incidence and mortality from 27 cancers in 2008 have been prepared for 182 countries as part of the GLOBOCAN series published by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. [] Key Result Overall, an estimated 12.7 million new cancer cases and 7.6 million cancer deaths occur in 2008, with 56% of new cancer cases and 63% of the cancer deaths occurring in the less developed regions of the world.
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.
Incidence and Mortality Rates for All Cancers Combined and Top 22 Cancer Sites
TLDR
A substantial proportion of the worldwide burden of cancer could be prevented through the application of existing cancer control knowledge and by implementing programs for tobacco control, vaccination, and early detection and treatment, as well as public health campaigns promoting physical activity and a healthier dietary intake.
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 cancer statistics
TLDR
A substantial proportion of the worldwide burden of cancer could be prevented through the application of existing cancer control knowledge and by implementing programs for tobacco control, vaccination, and early detection and treatment, as well as public health campaigns promoting physical activity and a healthier dietary intake.
Global estimates of cancer prevalence for 27 sites in the adult population in 2008
TLDR
The latest estimates of global cancer incidence and survival were used to update previous figures of limited duration prevalence to the year 2008 and highlight the need for long‐term care targeted at managing patients with certain very frequently diagnosed cancer forms.
Can We Discover “Really Safe and Effective” Anticancer Drugs?
TLDR
World population growth and ageing imply a progressive increase in the cancer burden 26 million new cases and 17 million cancer deaths are expected in 2030, even if current rates remain unchanged; therefore, new, safe and effective treatments are clearly needed to curtail these high mortality statistics.
Cancer prevalence, incidence and mortality rates in Pakistan in 2012
TLDR
An overview of the cancer burden in Pakistan, including the 1, 3, 5-years prevalence, estimated number of new cancer cases and deaths in 2012 by age and the most prevalent cancers in Pakistan are concluded.

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.
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.
Estimates of the worldwide mortality from eighteen major cancers in 1985. Implications for prevention and projections of future burden
TLDR
It is estimated that 20% of all cancer deaths (1 million) could be prevented by eliminating tobacco smoking, and mortality from cancers of the liver and uterine cervix, both major problems in developing countries, could be substantially reduced by immunization against hepatitis B virus infection and early detection through Pap smears, respectively.
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.
Estimates of the worldwide frequency of sixteen major cancers in 1980
TLDR
The numbers of new cancer cases in 16 common sites occurring in 1980 have been estimated and it is suggested that, with declining incidence rates for stomach cancer and the continuing rise for lung cancer, the latter would become the most common cancer in the world by the end of 1981.
Estimates of the cancer incidence and mortality in Europe in 2006.
TLDR
The total number of new cases of cancer in Europe appears to have increased by 300,000 since 2004 and the ageing of the European population will cause these numbers to continue to increase even if age-specific rates remain constant.
Cancer survival in Kampala, Uganda
TLDR
In general, the prognosis of cancer patients in Uganda was very poor and differences in survival between the two patient populations were particularly dramatic for those cancer types for which early diagnosis and effective treatment is possible.
Global and regional estimates of cancer mortality and incidence by site: II. results for the global burden of disease 2000
TLDR
Despite a regional variation, the most common cancers are potentially preventable and cancer burden estimation by taking into account both mortality and morbidity is an essential step to set research priorities and policy formulation.
Estimates of the worldwide frequency of twelve major cancers.
By examination of incidence, mortality, and relative frequency data, an estimate has been made of the number of cancer cases in 12 common sites and of all cancers that occurred in 1975 and in the
