What's new?

Little information is available on trends in cancer incidence from sub-Saharan Africa. To help rectify that situation, the authors of the present study examined cancer incidence trends over a 20-year period in Kyadondo County, which includes Kampala, the capital of Uganda, using data from the Kampala Cancer Registry. Some trends were expected, such as an increase in cancers associated with Western lifestyles. Other trends, however, such as a lack of decline in cancers of the cervix, esophagus, and stomach, which are associated with poverty, were surprising. In addition, HIV-related cancers showed only modest or no recent decline.
