Population-based incidence data on nasopharyngeal carcinomas (NPC) from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results program in the United States were examined for the years 1973-1986.
The 1,645 cases showed incidence rates varying according to ethnic origin, with Chinese having the highest, followed by Filipinos, Blacks and Whites.
In females the incidence was about half of that seen in males, in each of these groups.
There was no evidence of changes in incidence rates during the study period.
