LOPEZ-ABENTE, G. et al. State of cancer in Spain: incidence. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2004, vol.27, n.2, pp.165-173. ISSN 1137-6627.

It is estimated that at present in Spain around 162,000 cases of cancer are diagnosed each year (without including non-melanoma skin cancer), of which 25,600 correspond to colorectal carcinomas, which is the most frequent of all tumours in absolute terms. The next tumour in terms of frequency is lung cancer with 18,800 new cases, followed by breast cancer in women with 15,979 cases. When the incidence of cancer is compared with that in neighbouring countries, Spain shows adjusted rates in men higher than those of the average for the EU, occupying the 5th place. However, in women, Spain shows the lowest rates together with Greece. Spain occupies the first place for cancer of the bladder in men, with rates that are considerably higher than those of the rest of the countries. It is important to verify the increase underway in the incidence of cancer in Spain and the contrast that this represents facing the evolution of mortality. For many important tumoral localisations (lung, stomach, bladder), the population registers do not cover the provinces where there is a greater mortality.
