Cancer constitutes an enormous burden on society in more and less economically developed countries alike. The occurrence of cancer is increasing because of the growth and aging of the population, as well as an increasing prevalence of established risk factors such as smoking, overweight, physical inactivity, and changing reproductive patterns associated with urbanization and economic development. Based on GLOBOCAN estimates, about 14.1 million new cancer cases and 8.2 million deaths occurred in…

The aim of this paper is to provide a review of incidence, mortality and survival rates for colorectal cancer as well as their geographic variations and temporal trends.

Cancer Research in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: Consortiums, Implementation Science and Healthcare Delivery

The rapid societal and economic transition in many countries means that any reductions in infection-related cancers are offset by an increasing number of new cases that are more associated with reproductive, dietary, and hormonal factors (breast, colorectal, prostate).

Incidence and Mortality and Epidemiology of Breast Cancer in the World.

This study aimed to investigate the incidence and mortality of breast cancer in the world using age-specific incidenceand mortality rates for the year 2012 acquired from the global cancer project (GLOBOCAN 2012) as well as data about incidence andortality of the cancer based on national reports.

Many of the estimated cancer cases and deaths can be prevented through reducing the prevalence of risk factors, while increasing the effectiveness of clinical care delivery, particularly for those living in rural areas and in disadvantaged populations.

Disparities in Incidence and Mortality of Breast Cancer

Investigation of the incidence and mortality from breast cancer in the word base on Human Development Index showed that the incidence of cancer in was related to HDI, which evaluates the average achievements in a country in three human dimensions (the long life, access to knowledge, and the standard of adequate living).

Profiling global cancer incidence and mortality by socioeconomic development

The association between national socioeconomic levels and incidence and mortality rates for all cancers combined and 27 cancer types, in 175 countries, are assessed and an index of socioeconomic development based on national education and income levels extracted from the United Nations Development Programme is computed.

Given the increasing incidence of lung cancer in less developed countries and the current lack of effective treatment for advanced lung cancers, these results highlight the need for ongoing global tobacco reform to reduce the international burden of Lung cancer.

Breast cancer statistics

Breast cancer rates vary largely by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status (SES), and geographic region, and death rates are higher in African American women than in whites, despite their lower incidence rates.
