    Article - En anglais

    The National Cancer Registry (NCR) collects information on cancer diagnoses via a nation-wide network of public and private pathology laboratories.

    In 1988,45 570 new laboratory-diagnosed cancer cases were reported to the NCR.

    Minimal age-standardised registration rates for black, white, coloured and Asian males were 112,2,229,9,192,2 and 91,6/100 000, respectively, and those for females 107,2,201,3 148,1 and I18,0. About 40% of cancers in females and 31,3% in males occurred in potentially economically active adults aged 15-54 years.

    The top five cancers in males were :

    • (i) basal cell skin cancer ;

    • (ii) cancer of the prostate gland ;

    • (iii) cancer of the oesophagus ;

    • (iv) lung cancer ;

    • and (v) squamous cell skin cancer.
