The aim of the study.
Assessment of prostate cancer incidence in the Ma這polska Province with reference to respective counties, in the years 1999-2001.
Material and methods.
Cancer reporting cards sent to the Ma這polska Cancer Registry were the source of information. Average annual incidence as well as crude and standardised incidence rates per 100 000 of the population studied were calculated.
In the Ma這polska Province, in the years 1999-2001, an average of 436 new prostate cancer cases were registered each year. These cancers constituted about 8.2% of all registered cancers in males. The percentage of diagnoses confirmed by histological examination was about 54.1%.
The results of the study point to differentiation in prostate cancer incidence within the Ma這polska Province area. The geographical analysis shows that the risk relating to this cancer is the highest among male residents of Nowy S帷z and Nowy S帷z County, and the O鈍i璚im County. The incidence rates in these regions exceed the average incidence of prostate cancer in Poland by 68.0% and the average Ma這polska Province incidence by 49.0%.
