Cancer incidence and mortality patterns in Europe

14/08/2018 – A new study led by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), in collaboration with the European Network of Cancer Registries (ENCR) and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC), estimates 3.9 million new cases of cancer (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer) and 1.9 million deaths from cancer in Europe in 2018. The report, published in the European Journal of Cancer, describes the estimated incidence and mortality burden from 25 common cancers in 40 European countries, in the European Union’s 28 Member States, and in Europe, for 2018.

Changing geographical patterns and trends in cancer incidence in children and adolescents in Europe, 1991–2010

09/08/2018 – New data from the Automated Childhood Cancer Information System (ACCIS), a project coordinated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), reveal a continued increase in the incidence rates of cancer in children and adolescents across Europe during the period 1991–2010. The results, published in The Lancet Oncology, show an average annual increase of 0.5% in children (age 0–14 years) and of 1.0% in adolescents (age 15–19 years). The study includes data on more than 180 000 cases arising in 1.3 billion person-years, which were contributed by 53 population-based cancer registries in 19 countries.
