The eighth volume in the Cancer Incidence in Five Continents series presents comprehensive data on cancer incidence for over 200 populations worldwide. The time-period covered is 1993-97, making available information on patterns and trends of cancer for over 40 years for the older established cancer registries. The book follows the traditional format, with background chapters and descriptions of the areas and populations presented, as well as data on incidence by site and by histological type.
