Objectives: We sought to evaluate the trends in age-standardized incidence rates of cancer by gender, age, and types in the Sivas province of Turkey from 2004 to 2014.
Methods: Data were obtained from the Sivas Public Health Department Cancer Unit and the Cumhuriyet University Hospital Cancer Record Unit for the studied period.
Data were presented as incidence rates by age, gender, and cancer site using world agestandardized incidence rate (ASR-W) per 105 populations.
Results: Of the 13 377 registered new cases of cancer during the study period, 43.1% (5771) were female, and 56.9% (7606) were male.
The ASR-W of all cancers was 205.2 per 105 in males and 168.0 per 105 in females.
The ASR-W was increased for both genders over the 11-year period.
The greatest incidence cancer type in males was prostate cancer (ASR-W = 35.8) followed by lung (ASR-W = 33.9), colorectal (ASR-W= 19.0), urinary (ASR-W = 18.4), and stomach (ASR-W = 17.3) cancer.
Among females, thyroid (ASR-W= 37.5) was the cancer type with the greatest incidence followed by breast (ASR-W = 27.7), colorectal (ASR-W = 11.7), lymphoma (ASR-W = 10.4), and stomach (ASR-W = 10.0) cancer.
Conclusions: The cancer incidence rate in males has remained higher than in females from 2004 to 2014, and an increased incidence of various cancers was observed in both genders.
Raising public awareness about the risk factors for cancer and the development of appropriate and effective screening programs to provide more reliable data for cancer prevention and control programs in Sivas province is necessary
