Abstract

Introduction: Lung cancer is one of the greatest challenges for modern medicine and in Poland the incidence and mortality rate are one of the highest. The aim of the study was to assess trends in the incidence and mortality rate lung cancer in the Podkarpackie province in the years 2002−2011.

Material and methods: 9993 cases (8018 men and 1975 women) and 8782 deaths (7211 men and 1571 women) of lung cancer were analyzed. Crude rate and standardized coefficients of incidence and mortality as well as stratum weight, and cumulative risk of incidence and mortality were calculated.

Results: In 2011, in Podkarpackie province a decrease number of lung cancer cases in men was observed compared to 2002 amounting to 195 case, but in women, an increase of 39 new cases was noted. Incidence rates in men were in the range of 65.8−93.1/100 000, while in women they ranged 9.6−35.2/100 000. Mortality rates for males ranged from 59.2 to 82.8/100 000, and in women from 6.1 to 29.0/100 000. Considerable diversity in incidence and mortality in different districts of the province of Podkarpackie was observed.

Conclusions: In the years 2002−2011 the values of incidence and mortality rates for men in Podkarpackie province were lower than the rates for Poland, in case of women the same rates for Podkarpackie were almost two times lower than the rates for Poland. In the years 2002−2011 the highest value of incidence and mortality rate out of all districts of Podkarpackie Province was observed in the district Lubaczów for men and in Przemyśl in case of women.
