PATTERN OF CANCER IN YEMEN: FIRST RESULT FROM THE NATIONAL ONCOLOGY CENTER, SANA'A, 2007

ejpmr, 2017,4( 1 ), 149 - 154

ejpmr,

Yemen is a developing country located in the south west of Asia, occupying the south of Arab Peninsula. Cancer is a major public he alth problem in Yemen, the size of the problem and underlying risk factors is not yet well studied. The aim of this study is to report the pattern of cancers in Yemen. Material and methods : Data for the year 2007 available at the cancer registry department in National Oncology Center were used. Descriptive analysis of 3782 cases with various types were registered according to type of cancer, age, sex, site of lesion and governorate and has been analyzed using Epi info 7. Results: In 2007, a total of 3782 cases were registered with an equal male to female ratio and median age at diagnosis of 50 years that was slightly lower among females than males: 47 vs. 50 respectively. Among females, breast cancer was the most common cancer (21%) followed by lymphoma (8 %) ovary and leukemia (7% each), while among males the most common cancers were lymphomas (11%), leukemia (9%) and liver, stomach and CNS tumors (7% each). Of all registered cases, there were 437 cancer cases (11.6%) aged 15 years old or less with a median age of 7 years. The most common cancer among children were leukemia (24%), followed by non - Hodgkin's lymphoma (17%) and CNS tumors and Hodgkin's lymphoma (10% each). Conclusions: Cancer is diagnosed at a relatively younger age in Yemen, especially among f emales and breast cancer accounts for about a quarter of cases among women. Yemen needs to strengthen regional as well as national cancer registries to determine the burden of cancer in Yemen as a first step for cancer control strategy. Analytical studies are recommended to understand the risk factors and plan prevention and control for the most common cancers such as lymphoma, leukemia and liver cancers.

Tobacco and Betel Quid in Development of Oral Cancer

JCPCR 07 00223

JCPCR

Oral cancer is a public health problem in many parts of the world, representing the sixth most common malignant neoplasm. Oral cancer epidemiologically registers over 300000 new cases of oral cancer annually; two thirds of these cases occur in developing countries. The incidence of oral cancers among men is highest in northern India, a few areas of central and Eastern Europe, and Latin America. In Asian countries the high incidence rates were reported from developing nations like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Taiwan. Oral cancers displayed the worst survival rates in Latin America, India and Yemen. Some countries share specific risk factors namely heavy tobacco smoking, alcohol consumption, chewing of betel-quid, gutka, Zarda, Kharra, snuff and Khat. In addition, other specific risk factors are viral infection (HPV), poor oral hygiene and high intake of charcoal-grilled red meat and mate. Recommendation: Urgent public health measures are needed to reduce the incidence and mortality of oral cancer.

Magnitude of Cancer in Alamal Oncology Unit, Aden, Yemen

Journal of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology: August 2009 - Volume 31 - Issue 8 - ppg 605-618

Pediatr Hematol Oncol Volume 31, Number 8, August 2009

Alamal Oncology Unit was established in December 2007 in Aden to care for cancer patients and to record their cases in the hospitalbased cancer registry. There were 526 cases registered at the Alamal Oncology Unit during the period between January 2008 and December 2008. All cases were histopathology confirmed. Results: There were 225 men (42.8%) and 301 women (57.1%). The most common sites in both sexes were digestive organs (22.4%), breast (20.9%), lymphatic system (18.3%), head and neck (10.5%), and female genital organs (9.3%). The age group with more cancer presentation was 50 to 59 years in both sexes. Men were more affected between 50 and 69 years of age, mostly with colorectal and stomach cancers, and women between 40 and 49 years of age, mostly with breast cancers. The mortality rate was high for acute leukemia (23/28), lung cancer (7/14), liver cancer (7/17), pancreatic cancer (5/16), nonhodgkin lymphoma (9/62), colorectal cancer (7/53), and nasopharynx cancer (7/32). Conclusion: The gastrointestinal tract, breast and lymphatic system are the most common sites affected, and the 50-to-59 year age group is the most commonly affected. Recommendation: Urgent approval of national cancer control strategy and improvement in the early detection of cancer and establishment of cancer centers to cover the governorates of Yemen. https://journals.lww.com/jpho-online/Citation/2009/08000/Leading_the_Way_in_Pain_Control__A_MECC_ONS_Course.16.aspx
