This article provides a status report on the global burden of cancer worldwide using the GLOBOCAN 2018 estimates of cancer incidence and mortality produced by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, with a focus on geographic variability across 20 world regions. [] Key Result In both sexes combined, lung cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer (11.6% of the total cases) and the leading cause of cancer death (18.4% of the total cancer deaths), closely followed by female breast cancer (11.6…
Global Cancer Statistics 2020: GLOBOCAN Estimates of Incidence and Mortality Worldwide for 36 Cancers in 185 Countries
TLDR
The global cancer burden is expected to be 28.4 million cases in 2040, a 47% rise from 2020, with a larger increase in transitioning versus transitioned countries due to demographic changes, although this may be further exacerbated by increasing risk factors associated with globalization and a growing economy.
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.
CANCER EPIDEMIOLOGY IN THE WORLD
TLDR
An overview of the epidemiological aspects of the spread of malignancies around the world using estimates of morbidity and mortality according to GLOBOCAN data shows that cervical cancer has high incidence rates in South America and low incidence rate in North America.
Global, regional, national burden of breast cancer in 185 countries: evidence from GLOBOCAN 2018
TLDR
The substantial burden of breast cancer in developing and low-resource economies calls for a holistic approach to cancer management and control that includes oncologic infrastructure to provide cost-effective screening, diagnostic, therapeutic, and palliative services, greater breast cancer awareness, and mitigation of risk factors.
Global trends in colorectal cancer mortality: projections to the year 2035
TLDR
Mortality rates for colon cancer are predicted to continue decreasing in the majority of included countries from Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania, except Latin America and Caribbean countries, and the number of deaths is expected to rise in all countries for both colon and rectal cancer by 60.0% and 71.5% until 2035 due to population growth and ageing.
Global Burden of 5 Major Types Of Gastrointestinal Cancer.
TLDR
There was a uniform decrease in gastric cancer incidence but an increasing incidence of colorectal cancer in formerly low-incidence regions over the studied time period, and slight increases in incidence of liver and pancreatic cancer in some high-income regions.
Breast cancer burden in Africa: evidence from GLOBOCAN 2018.
TLDR
To tackle breast cancer burden in Africa, the main challenges are late-stage disease presentation, lack of screening and therapeutic infrastructure, Lack of awareness and limited resources.
Descriptive epidemiology of incidence and mortality of primary liver cancer in 185 countries: evidence from GLOBOCAN 2018.
TLDR
Policy focus must be on prevention approaches through the hepatitis-B vaccine, early detection of hepatitis-C infection, reduced alcohol consumption, obesity control, reduced aflatoxin exposure and containment of other modifiable risk factors.
Liquid biopsy in lung cancer-hope or hype?
TLDR
In a study on epidemiological patterns and clinical profile of 489 lung cancer patients in India, it was found that 255 (52%) were non‐smokers and 234 (48%) were smokers, thereby concluding higher numbers of Indian patients with lung cancer are non-smokers compared to the West.
GLOBAL CANCER STATISTICS 2018: GLOBOCAN ESTIMATES OF INCIDENCE AND MORTALITY WORLDWIDE STOMACH CANCERS AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT INDEX (HDI)
TLDR
Paying attention to the development index can be effective in reducing the mortality rate of stomach cancer, according to the results of this study.

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.
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.
Cancer in Africa 2012
TLDR
With the number of annual cancer cases and deaths likely to increase by at least 70% by 2030, there is a pressing need for a coordinated approach to improving the extent and quality of services for cancer control in Africa, and better surveillance systems with which they can be planned and monitored.
Global cancer statistics, 2012
TLDR
A substantial portion of cancer cases and deaths could be prevented by broadly applying effective prevention measures, such as tobacco control, vaccination, and the use of early detection tests.
More deaths from pancreatic cancer than breast cancer in the EU by 2017
TLDR
Although strategies may emerge in the near future that will enhance the prospects of improving the very poor five-year survival from pancreatic cancer, coordinated efforts are necessary to reduce the foreseeable high mortality burden of disease within the EU.
Cancer incidence and cancer control in Mongolia: Results from the National Cancer Registry 2008–12
TLDR
Cancer data based on new cases 2008–12 from the National Cancer Registry of Mongolia covering the entire population sheds light on the considerable magnitude of cancer in the country and the large fraction of cancers that can be prevented by lifestyle modifications and vaccine implementation.
Cancer patterns, trends and projections in Latin America and the Caribbean: a global context.
TLDR
Cancer patterns and trends reflect the significant sociodemographic changes in the region: the growing burden imposes great challenges to national health care systems to implement cancer control actions, while improving cancer surveillance to effectively measure the response.
Global Patterns of Prostate Cancer Incidence, Aggressiveness, and Mortality in Men of African Descent
TLDR
A higher proportion of T1 stage prostate tumors in countries with greater percent gross domestic product spent on health care and physicians per 100,000 persons reported lower mortality rates, suggesting that CaP is underdiagnosed and/or underreported in SSA men.
Global patterns and trends in colorectal cancer incidence and mortality
TLDR
Pattern and trends in CRC incidence and mortality correlate with present human development levels and their incremental changes might reflect the adoption of more western lifestyles, pointing towards widening disparities and an increasing burden in countries in transition.
