Abstract

There were registered 4382 cancer cases in the Cracow Region in 1998, 2154 in males and 2228 in females. For men the most frequently registered cancer cases were: cancer of the lung (26.1%), prostate (8.2%), stomach (6.7%), skin (5.6%), urinary bladder (5.5%). The most common in women were: cancer of the breast (20.1%), cervix uteri (7.7%), lung (7.4%), ovary (7.0%), skin (6.0%). In 1998, 2793 persons died of cancer, of which 1558 were males, and 1235 females. Lung cancer was the most frequent case of cancer death in males (33.2%). Cancer of the stomach (8.9%), prostate (7.2%), urinary bladder (5.1%) and colon (4.6%) were also a major cause of cancer death. Most of the women died from breast (13.8%) and lung cancer (10.3%), the next frequent sites of cancer were: colon (7.0%), cervix uteri (6.8%) and ovary (6.6%). The prognosis of standardised cancer incidence values in men and women by the year 2003, showed further growth in incidence rates for both sexes, but this growth is more evident in women.
