Cancer data in India show new patterns - The Lancet Oncology



abstract

 On May 18, 2016 new data from cancer registries in India was presented at a workshop at the Indian Council of Medical Research headquarters (ICMR; New Delhi, India). The report showed emerging trends in cancer incidence in India, such as the increase in lung cancer in women and colon cancer in men. Consolidated reports of 27 population-based and 17 hospital-based registries for 2012–14 show that breast cancer is the most common cancer in India and continues to increase in incidence. Cancers of the uterus, ovary, and lung are increasing in women in urban areas, whereas overall incidence of cervical cancer is decreasing.
