The aim of the present study was to investigate the incidence of breast (females), prostate, testicular, and thyroid cancer in the Italian National Priority Contaminated Sites (NPCSs), served by cancer registries, where the presence of endocrine disruptors (EDs), reported to . "Superficial cancer in the Sudan accounted for % of all malignant tumours examined histologically during the period inclusive. Of the 4 pathological types studied, squamous cell carcinoma was the commonest (% of all superficial cancers) followed by malignant melanoma (%) and basal cell carcinoma (%) whilst Kaposi's sarcoma formed only 3% of the by:

cases of primary malignant disease of the lung, diagnosed histologically in the Pathological BULLETIN OF HYGIENE May, Department of the University of Cape Town during the years , have been re-examined and classified according to the specific histological type. The series includes cases diagnosed at autopsy or operation. Of the cases studied occurred in Europeans, 92 in Cited by: 2. One reason might be the impact on incidence trends of skin cancer prevention activities that were first initiated in Australia from the s but only towards the end of the 20th century in the UK.

The incidence of salivary gland tumors (SGTs) is claimed to be influenced by geographical and racial factors. Histopathological diagnosis plays a major role in the diagnosis of these neoplasms. Using data from “Cancer Incidence in Five Continents” and the Inter-American Investigation of Mortality, research opportunities in cancer of the cervix, stomach, lung, penis, and other tumours are reviewed.

The identification of population groups exposed to known carcinogens or risk factors. factors as low birth weight and low maternal age,3 genetic differences, or failure of diagnosis. The study showed an interesting trend.1 Over the course of the period of study, vascular tumours and Kaposi sarcoma seemed to increase in incidence, whereas hepatocellular carcinoma.

Childhood Tumours (NRCT), the peak incidence was in children below one year, similar to findings in USA studies. After the age of on e year, the incidence re duced steadily.

Race/ethnicity was categorized as non-Hispanic white, black, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic white, or American Cited by:   Gender differences in susceptibility to a disease is a very useful piece of information that can be used to develop a causal hypothesis for the disease, or to define subgroups at highest risk for preventive action (Zahm and Fraumeni, ).The gender differential in cancer incidence rates is comparable to ethnic and racial disparity in magnitude, and yet, most studies fail to look for by: Cancer is one of the world’s largest health problems.

The Global Burden of Disease estimates that million people died prematurely as a result of cancer in Every sixth death in the world is due to cancer. The Global Burden of Disease is a major global study on the causes and risk factors for death and disease published in the medical journal The Lancet.

Previous reports have shown that overall incidence of malignant brain and other central nervous system (CNS) tumors varied significantly by country. The aim of this study was to estimate histology-specific incidence rates by global region and assess incidence variation by histology and by:   10 Incidence of cancer depends on a) Predisposing factors Familial and genetic factors Racial and geographical factors Environmental and cultural factors Age Sex b) Chronic non neoplastic (pre-malignant) conditions- to prevent occurrence, characterstics of morphological changes c) Hormones - Oestrogen- for experimental induction, oestrogen.

Baron. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) has a unique and complex etiology that is not completely understood. Although NPC is rare in most populations, it is a leading form of cancer in a few well-defined populations, including natives of southern China, Southeast Asia, the Arctic, and the Middle East/North Africa.

The distinctive racial/ethnic and geographic distribution of NPC worldwide suggests Cited by:   1. Introduction.

Migrant studies have taken advantage of the wide geographical variation in cancer risk. Cancer rates in migrants, obtained from routinely collected incidence or mortality statistics, are compared with those in the host country and in the country of origin; the rate of change with time since migration (or age at migration) and in subsequent generations is assessed; and the results are Cited by: Some cancer clusters have been shown through careful investigation to be the result of a specific cancer-causing substance in the environment.

However, such findings are extremely rare. One review of cancer cluster investigations conducted over 20 years found that for only 72 of the apparent clusters could an increase in cancer rate be.

Abstract. Recent decades have seen a worrying trend in incidence rates of distal oesophageal and proximal gastric cancers. Fuelled by radical changes in lifestyle, diet, physical activity and environmental exposures, as well as an ageing population and host genetic predisposition, the incidence of oesophageal adenocarcinoma (OAC) is on the rise in Western by: 2.

The present study aimed to clarify the incidence and clinical outcomes of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) in the Chubu region of Japan from tocompared with previous reports.

A retrospective analysis was conducted based on medical records from 40 hospitals located in the Chubu region in the central Japanese main island, with a population of around million : Masafumi Kanno, Norihiko Narita, Yasushi Fujimoto, Naohiro Wakisaka, Tomokazu Yoshizaki, Takeshi Kod.

It is a rare condition, but the incidence of Bowenoid Papulosis is reported to be increasing Individuals with congenital HIV infection may present Bowenoid Papulosis at an early age The condition has no specific geographical, racial, or ethnic preference; it is observed around the world.

The more common occurrence of carcinomas, tumours refractory to treatment once spread beyond the primary site, and more aggressive course of a number of malignancies with increasing age (ALL, embryonal tumours, CNS tumours, sarcomas) may be secondary factors contributing to the widening gap in outcome improvement by: Diffuse astrocytomas account for approximately % of all astrocytic brain tumours {,}.
