figure2: The relative frequency of ten leading cancer site incidences and mortality in Ukraine in 2011 (data from the National Cancer Register).

Mentions: There are many reasons for this, and the main one is the fact that the levels of cancer caused morbidity and mortality in Ukraine are still growing. This tendency coincides with the state of art in most European countries or in the United States. During the last decade, the cancer morbidity in Ukraine has increased, and according to the data of the State Statistic Service of Ukraine, the number of newly registered cases increased from 382,000 in 2000 to 433,000 in 2012 [3]. According to the National Cancer Register, in 2011, the cancer incidence and mortality crude rates in Ukraine were correspondingly 370.7 and 186.3 per 100,000 of population [4]. Figure 2 represents the relative frequency of ten leading cancer site incidences and mortality in Ukraine in 2011 [4]. We must take into account that our population is nearly 47 million, and the number of practising medical oncologists is 4.3 per 100,000 of population [3].
