Abstract

Greater Poland is a region with a high risk of cancer. In terms of age-standardised incidence rate, it is ranked 2nd for men and 3rd for women out of Poland’s 16 provinces. Incidence structure in the region of Greater Poland is similar to that in other West European countries. The most common cancers in men are lung, prostate and colorectal, in women: breast, colorectal and lung. In 2016, nearly every third cancer-related death in the region was caused by lung cancer. In women, it was cause no. one. The incidence of chronic diseases, including cancer, is expected to further grow in view of the global ageing of the population. This means that malignancies will remain to be a major challenge for public health care.in the Greater Poland region.
