Changing mortality patterns for major cancers in Spain, 1951-1985.
Age-standardized mortality rates per 100000 were computed using the direct method.
The Spanish population of 1970 was used as the standard.
Age-standardized mortality rates for total cancer showed a marked increase among men throughout the period of study.
This can be attributed mainly to the increase in lung cancer mortality, which was only partially balanced by a reduction in the stomach cancer mortality.
Among women the increase in total cancer is lower overall.
