Epidemiology of cancer of the female genital organs in Yugoslavia

, : Epidemiology of cancer of the female genital organs in Yugoslavia. European Journal of Gynaecological Oncology 9(2): 139-143

The descriptive epidemiological method was applied. In the preparation of the data, basic statistical procedures were used. Data were obtained from Slovenian Cancer Registry and Yugoslav Statistics Institute, and studied over the period from 1971 to 1985. In terms of rate of occurrence, malignant neoplasms of the female genital organs rank first in all cases of cancer, with 20.94%. Uterine cervix and corpus and ovary, are always in the ten leading primary cancer sites. Malignant neoplasms of the female genital organs comprise about 2% of all causes of death in females and just over 15% of all deaths from cancer. Cervical cancer has an average incidence rate of 18.56, while mortality rate is 4.67 per 100,000 women. Both incidence and mortality decreased throughout the investigated period. Other malignant neoplasms of the uterus appear in 15.45 cases per 100,000 and this rate shows a slightly increasing trend. However, the mortality rate is 3.77 and this shows a distinct decrease, in all parts of the country. The average incidence rate for cancer of the ovary is 12.61, decreasing slowly. Malignant neoplasms of the ovary have the mortality rate of 3.94, which has been constantly rising. Malignant neoplasms of the other genital organs have the average incidence rate of 3.15 and mortality rate of 0.95. These rates remain stable over the period from 1971 to 1985.
