Socioeconomic differentials and mortality from colorectal cancer in large cities in Brazil

  title={Socioeconomic differentials and mortality from colorectal cancer in large cities in Brazil},
  author={Viviane Gomes Parreira and Karina Cardoso Meira and Raphael Mendonça Guimar{\~a}es},
The objective of this study was to compare the mortality pattern of colorectal cancer according to the social development profile of the large Brazilian cities. This was an ecological study that used as units of analysis Brazilian municipalities that were considered to be large (i.e. over 100,000 inhabitants). The social indicators adopted were obtained from the Atlas of Human Development in Brazil. Mortality data came from the Mortality Information System (MIS), represented by codes C18, C19…

Socioeconomic inequalities in cancer mortality: Is Costa Rica an exception to the rule?

The findings confirmed the importance of conducting studies in middle‐ Income countries, since the socioeconomic and cultural contexts are different from those in high‐income countries, which influence the social distribution of lifestyles and risk behaviors.

Colorectal cancer mortality in Mato Grosso, Brazil: Spatiotemporal trends.

It was concluded that spatiotemporal modelling is a useful tool for the characterisation of diseases, including cancer, which are influenced by several factors and need to be monitored over space and time.

Social inequalities in cancer in Latin America

Although the reduction in poverty has been accompanied by improvements in both education and health-related indicators, progress in policies to maintain these achievements has been insufficient; this lack of progress is due particularly to the scant development in social protection.

Impact of sociodemographic factors and screening, diagnosis, and treatment strategies on colorectal cancer mortality in Brazil: A 20-year ecological study

The highest adjusted mortality rates were found among white individuals and in the South of the country, and single, married, and widowed northern and northeastern persons had a higher risk of death than legally separated southern persons.

Factors associated with the survival of colorectal cancer in Mexico

Poor prognostic factors include an advanced clinical stage, the presence of metastasis and a low level of schooling, which confirm the importance of screening for early diagnosis, diminishing the barriers to accessing treatment and prospectively monitoring the population.

Reducing Social Inequalities in Cancer: Evidence and Priorities for Research

A new Scientific Publication from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the specialized cancer agency of the World Health Organization (WHO), examines the global problem of social inequalities in cancer.

Tendência temporal de mortalidade por câncer colorretal na região sul do Brasil no período de 1996 a 2015

There is a growing trend in the Southern Region, in both sexes and in the age groups of young adults, from 40 years old, with greater increases in mortality from 70 years old in males and 80 years in females, highlighting the importance of defining early interventions that reduce CRC mortality.



Cancer mortality trends in Brazilian state capitals and other municipalities between 1980 and 2006.

The correction of mortality rates based on redistribution of ill-defined causes of death increased the magnitude of the overall cancer mortality in Brazil by approximately 10% in 1980 and 5% in 2006.

Colorectal Cancer Mortality in Brazil: Predictions Until the Year 2025 and Cancer Control Implications

The results presented herein show that the disease burden will be higher in the North, Northeast, and Central West regions of the country, which also correspond with the least developed regions, mostly because of the aging process of the population.

Trends in socioeconomic inequalities in cancer mortality in Barcelona: 1992–2003

This study has identified those cancer types presenting the greatest inequalities between men and women in recent years and shown that in Barcelona there is a stable trend in inequalities in the burden of cancer.

P2-109 Increase income and mortality of colorectal cancer in Brazil

The increase in income may partially explain the increased occurrence of cancer of the colon, rectum and anus, and this is possibly due to differential access to food recognised as a risk factor, such as red meat and fat food.

Geographical variation and factors associated with colorectal cancer mortality in a universal health care system.

Individuals residing in lower income neighbourhoods experienced rising CRC mortality despite residing in a jurisdiction with universal health care and should receive increased efforts to reduce CRC mortality.

Increase income and mortality of colorrectal cancer in Brazil, 2001-2009.

The increase of income and reducing inequality may partially explain the increased occurrence of colorectal cancer and this is possibly due to differential access to food recognized as a risk factor, such as red meat and high in fat.

Trends in cancer mortality in Brazil, 1980–2004

The key issues of cancer mortality in Brazil are the high rates of head and neck cancers in men and (cervix) uterine cancer in women, that is, in principle cancers that are largely avoidable through prevention, screening, and early diagnosis.

The items surveyed comprise comparisons of the adjusted death-rates by countries and by sites, comparison of the sex ratios of the death rates by sites and by countries, the geographical correlation of male and female death rates of cancers of the same sites and the regional correlation.

Cancer registration data and quality indicators in low and middle income countries: their interpretation and potential use for the improvement of cancer care

The aim of this article is to demonstrate the value of cancer incidence data for LMIC, even when quality is questionable, as well as to attempt to interpret the messages that the quality indicators convey both for cancer registration and the healthcare system.
