      Efforts to reduce global cancer disparities begin with an understanding of geographic patterns in cancer incidence, mortality, and prevalence. Using the GLOBOCAN () and Cancer Incidence in Five Continents databases, we describe overall cancer incidence, mortality, and prevalence, age-adjusted temporal trends, and age-specific incidence patterns Cited by: Breast cancer is the world’s most common cancer among women, and it is the most likely reason that a woman will die from cancer (maps and ). Breast cancer is becoming an increasingly urgent problem in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), where incidence rates, historically low, have been rising by as much as 5 percent per year (Bray and others ).

      This new volume provides comparable data on cancer incidence collected from to from cancer registries in 65 countries. The online database is available on the CI5 website, and the printed book (IARC Scientific Publication No. ) will be published and sent to all contributing registries in The platform focuses on the visualization of cancer indicators to illustrate the changing scale, epidemiological profile, and impact of the disease worldwide, using data from several key projects of IARC’s Section of Cancer Surveillance (CSU), including GLOBOCAN; Cancer Incidence in Five Continents (CI5); International Incidence of Childhood.
