Global Cancer Incidences, Causes and Future Predictions for Subcontinent Region

Noor Kamil, Saba Kamil.

Cancer is a significant health concern throughout the globe and a leading
cause of death. In this review, we provide the summary of global incidences,
causes and future trend of cancer incidences in subcontinent region from
2015 to 2035, based on population data driven by World health organization
(GLOBOCAN) online prediction calculator. Data on the estimated number of
new cancer cases, mortality rate and global prevalence is available on GLOBOCAN
for all the countries and regions of the world. Data from the Cancer
facts and figures by World Cancer Research Fund International and Worldwide
Cancer Statistics by Cancer Research UK is also utilized. GLOBOCAN
provide global data on 27 different cancer types except nonmelanoma dermal
cancer. It shows data for both genders at all age groups. Demographic
effect of projected cancer incidences in subcontinent in both genders
has been compared with global demographic effect which predicted an
expected constant rise in all the years projected from 2015 to 2035. Cancer
friendly behaviors and cancer causing factors in the world are expected to
increase the global economic burden due to growth and aging of population.
A collective response from all the sectors of society will be helpful to design
and implement a coordinated and integrated comprehensive program to
control the rapidly growing burden of cancer in subcontinent.

Key words: Cancer cases, death rates, incidence, mortality, survival, demographic effect, disability-adjusted life year
