There are limited published data on recent cancer incidence and mortality trends worldwide. [] Key Method We used the International Agency for Research on Cancer's CANCERMondial clearinghouse to present age-standardized cancer incidence and death rates for 2003-2007. We also present trends in incidence through 2007 and mortality through 2012 for select countries from five continents. High-income countries (HIC) continue to have the highest incidence rates for all sites, as well as for lung, colorectal…

Global patterns and trends in lung cancer incidence: a population-based study.
Incidence and mortality of lung cancer: global trends and association with socioeconomic status
TLDR
Among women, Brazil, Spain and Cyprus had the greatest incidence increase, and all countries in Western, Southern and Eastern Europe reported increasing mortality, highlighting the need for targeted preventive measures.
Analysis of Cancer Incidence and Mortality in Iran Using Joinpoint Regression Analysis
TLDR
Overall, cancer incidence rates had increased in both sexes in Iran, and many factors were responsible, including changes in lifestyle, environmental factors, increased life expectancy, improvements in the registration systems, and declining mortality rates due to early detection and treatment.
Are Global Breast Cancer Incidence and Mortality Patterns Related to Country-Specific Economic Development and Prevention Strategies?
TLDR
Although breast cancer incidence increases with higher income levels in all ages, women in the poorest countries bear a relatively higher burden of breast cancer mortality, particularly women younger than age 50 years.
Favorable colorectal cancer mortality-to-incidence ratios in countries with high expenditures on health and development index
TLDR
CRC MIRs tend to be most favorable in countries with high health care expenditures and a high HDI, while the regions with the lowest M IRs for CRC are Oceania and North America.
Assessing trends of breast cancer and carcinoma in situ to monitor screening policies in developing settings
TLDR
In conclusion, it is found that incidence and mortality rates are compatible with those in regions with similar human development indexes, and trends have demonstrated stabilization.
Effects of fertility on breast cancer incidence trends: comparing France and US.
TLDR
Changes in fertility rate trends do not fully explain the increase incidence in breast cancer seen in both France and the US, nor the magnitude of difference between the two countries.
Influence of Income on Cancer Incidence and Death among Patients in Aomori, Japan
TLDR
Patients with higher income were diagnosed with early-stage disease more frequently, and they had higher AIRs for breast, cervical, and prostate cancers than those with middle and low incomes, and there were no significant differences in hazard ratios.
Patterns and Trends of Liver Cancer Incidence Rates in Eastern and Southeastern Asian Countries (1983-2007) and Predictions to 2030.
TLDR
Based on an analysis of data from cancer registries from Asian countries, incidence rates of liver cancer are expected to decrease through 2030 in most Eastern and Southeastern Asian countries; however, in Thailand, the incidence rate of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas is predicted to increase, so health education programs are necessary.

Incidence and mortality of female breast cancer in the Asia-Pacific region
TLDR
It is anticipated that incidence rates of breast cancer in developing countries throughout the Asia-Pacific region will continue to increase, and the challenge is to customise breast cancer control initiatives to the particular needs of each country to ensure the best possible outcomes.
Trends in mortality from major cancers in the Americas: 1980-2010.
TLDR
Cancer mortality from some common cancers is still comparatively low in Latin America, and decreasing trends continue for other cancer sites in several countries, but there were upward trends for colorectal cancer mortality for both sexes, and for lung and breast cancer mortality in women from most countries.

Global trends in breast cancer incidence and mortality 1973-1997.
TLDR
Breast cancer incidence and mortality rates remain highest in developed countries compared with developing countries, as a result of differential use of screening mammograms and disparities in lifestyle and hereditary factors.

This review outlines current international patterns in prostate cancer incidence and mortality rates and survival, including recent trends and a discussion of the possible impact of prostate-specific
International Variation in Lung Cancer Mortality Rates and Trends among Women
TLDR
Although widespread reductions in lung cancer in young women provide evidence of tobacco control success, rates continue to increase among older women in many countries, and more concentrated efforts to initiate or expand tobacco control programs in these countries globally will be required to attenuate the future lung cancer burden.
Esophageal cancer in Canada: trends according to morphology and anatomical location.
TLDR
The incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma has doubled in Canada in the past 20 years, which may reflect the increasing prevalence of obesity and gastroesophageals reflux disease and the potential for further increases in incidence.
Hepatocellular carcinoma incidence, mortality, and survival trends in the United States from 1975 to 2005.
TLDR
Screening of at-risk groups and treatment of localized-stage tumors may contribute to increasing HCC survival rates in the United States, particularly among middle-aged black, Hispanic, and white men.
