Publications are available with data since 1959. Since 1990 in Czech-English version (in 1987-1989 also English versions).

The input for this publication are data of the Czech National Cancer Registry. All neoplasms except non - malignant are registered. Data on newly reported neoplasms and on deaths from neoplasms are classified by sex, selected diagnoses, age group, territory. Ten most serious neoplasms in men and women are processed down to district level. Selected diagnoses are supplemented by 5-year survival data.

 

AKTUÁLNÍ INFORMACE (Topical Information)

This topical information of the Institute of Health Information and Statistics of the Czech Republic provides data about cancer cases newly reported to the Czech National Cancer Registry (CNCR). The total number of 83,581 cases of malignant neoplasms (MN) and in situ neoplasms was reported to the CNCR in 2011. In comparison to the previous year the incidence slightly increased by less than half a percent. In the same year 27,171 persons died for oncological diseases (2 % decrease). After the age standardization to the European population this means a slight year decrease in incidence (1.2 %) and reduction in mortality (4.5 %). The most frequent diagnoses of MN in 2011 included colorectal cancer, neoplasms of trachea, bronchus and lung, breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men. In summary, a slight decline in standardized incidence occurred in selected cancer diagnoses (with the exception of trachea, bronchus and lung and breast cancer in women). The mortality statistics is suplied by the Czech Statistical Office.

In 2011, the Czech Republic reported 2 044 (1 086 in men, 958 in women) new cases of malignant melanoma (the diagnosis code according to the International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision is C43) and 433 (179 in men, 254 in women) cases of melanoma in situ (code D03). In the same year 365 inhabitants of the Czech Republic died from the diagnosis of malignant melanoma. The incidence of C43 grew nearly four times since 1980 (when there were 565 reported cases). The source of data on the incidence of oncological diseases is the Czech National Cancer Registry. The European Melanoma Day will be held on the 12th May. Its purpose is to raise awareness of this malignant disease, which is one of the most common tumours in the Czech Republic (9th most frequently diagnosed tumour in 2011).

This topical information of the Institute of Health Information and Statistics of the Czech Republic provides data about cancer cases newly reported to the Czech National Cancer Registry (CNCR). The total number of 82,606 cases of malignant neoplasms (MN) and in situ neoplasms was reported to the CNCR in 2010. In comparison to the previous year, the incidence increased by 4 %. In the same year 27,834 persons died for oncological diseases (an increase by 0.6 %). After the age standardization to the European population this means a slight year increase in incidence (2.4 %) and reduction in mortality (0.9 %). The most frequent diagnoses of MN in 2010 included colorectal cancer, neoplasms of trachea, bronchus and lung, breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men. In summary, a slight decline in standardized incidence occurred in selected cancer diagnoses (with the exception of prostate and breast cancer). The mortality statistics is suplied by the Czech Statistical Office.

This Topical Information brings data on oncological diseases newly reported to National Cancer Registry of the Czech Republic (NCR CR) in 2009. The monitored data concern trends of incidence and mortality of all diagnoses of malignant neoplasms and particulary in selected most often diagnoses of malignant tumorous. Incidence is analysed by age structure as well. In all selected most often oncological diseases the standardised incidence has decreased mildly (except for MN of prostate). Total standardised cancer mortality has decreased too in 2009. Statistics of mortality is provided by Czech Statistical Office.

This Topical Information brings data on oncological diseases newly reported to National Cancer Registry of the Czech Republic (NCR CR) in 2008. The monitored data concern trends of incidence of all diagnoses of malignant neoplasms in the last decade. Incidence is analysed by age structure and by diagnoses. For the basic orientation the main trends of cancer mortality are pointed out. Statistics of mortality is provided by Czech Statistical Office.
