In four years, the number of new cancer cases reported annually in the world has grown by almost one and a half million, from 12.7 million in 2008 to 14.1 million in 2012. The first place both among newly diagnosed malignant neoplasms and among the causes of death from oncology is taken by lung cancer. These figures are presented in the updated version of the global cancer database GLOBOCAN 2012, maintained by the International Agency for Cancer Research (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO) and containing the most recent statistical information on 28 types of cancer in 184 countries.
The death rate from cancer in the world during this period also increased - from 7.6 million cases in 2008 to 8.2 million cases in 2012. Based on this dynamic, the IARC predicts that the number of newly diagnosed cancer cases will reach 19.3 million in 2025.
More than half of cancer cases in 2012 (56.8 percent) and cancer deaths (64.9 percent) occurred in the world's most economically depressed regions, and this imbalance is expected to widen by 2025.
The most frequently diagnosed cancer in the world in 2012 was lung (1.8 million cases, 13 percent of the total), breast (1.7 million cases, 11.9 percent) and intestinal cancer (1.4 million, 9.7 percent). Among the causes of death from oncology, lung cancer (1.6 million cases, 19.4 percent of the total), liver (0.8 million, 9.1 percent) and stomach (0.7 million, 8.8 percent) …
The IARC notes a significant increase in the prevalence and mortality from breast cancer in the world - compared with 2008, the number of newly diagnosed cases has increased by more than 20 percent, and the death rate - by 14 percent. In 2012, this type of cancer was the most frequent cause of cancer death among women (522 thousand cases).
According to preliminary estimates, in 2012, there were 32.6 million people over 15 years old who had some type of cancer in the previous five years.
