Patterns of increased incidence and survival of cutaneous melanoma in Girona (Spain) 1994-2013: a population-based study

Patterns of increased incidence and survival of cutaneous melanoma in Girona (Spain) 1994-2013: a population-based study

Clinical and Translational Oncology 2018

We conducted a population-based study on the Girona Cancer Registry (Spain) for the period 1994-2013 to determine patterns of change in the incidence of melanoma, which is increasing in many countries, and patient survival in our geographical area. Using the standard registration rules for cancer registries, we calculated crude and standardized incidence rates as well as their trends. We also analysed the observed survival, 1-year conditioned survival and relative survival at 3, 5 and 10 years. Our crude incidence rate was 9.13 cases/100,000 inhabitants for invasive and 2.59 for "in situ" melanomas. A statistically significant increase in incidence was found for melanomas of less than 1 mm in Breslow index and in males. 10-year observed and relative survival rates were 64.1 and 83.1%, respectively. We found an increasing trend in the incidence of low-risk melanoma and a survival rate similar to that reported elsewhere in Europe.
