Abstract

PURPOSE: This study is conducted to identify the annual average cancer incidence and the trend of cancer incidence in Daegu during the 5-year period from 1997 to 2001. METHOD: Data on newly diagnosed cancer patients from 1997 to 2001 were collected with a standard registration form. Medical record reviewers visited hospitals if necessary, to detect missing cancer patients.
RESULTS
The annual average overall number of cancer patient was 4,606 (male 2,529 and female 2,077). The crude average annual incidence of cancer in male were 211.8 (ASR 251.4) and 169.8 (ASR 151.3) in female. Five major cancers in male were stomach (ASR 60.3), bronchus and lung (ASR 44.8), liver and intrahepatic bile ducts (ASR 40.7), rectum (ASR 11.2), and colon (ASR 10.8). However, in women, those were stomach (ASR 25.3), breast (ASR 19.8), cervix (ASR 14.9), bronchus and lung (ASR 12.7), liver and intrahepatic bile ducts (ASR 11.1). Increases in incidence were found for colon cancer for both sexes, rectal cancer for males, and lung and breast cancer for females. Decreases were shown for liver cancer for both sexes and stomach and cervical cancer for females.
CONCLUSIONS
Primary prevention of cancer based on results of this study remains important.
