Cancer has been the most common cause of death in Korea since 1983. It's incidence has increased rapidly from 219.9 on 1999 to 311.6 per 100,0000 patients on 2013 reaching more than two folds increase of crude new patients (101,032 to 225,343). The patterns of cancer prevalence have been changing rapidly over the last three decades. Cancers of the stomach, liver and uterine cervix have decreased but breast, prostate, colo-rectum, lung & thyroid have increased rapidly. Especially, prostate cancer in men and breast cancer in women have increased dramatically during the last two decades.
Cancer survival has also improved nearly 30% during last 15 years (5 year survival rate; 41.2% to 69.4%). Korea has achieved dramatic economic development during last several decades. Economic development has contributed to improvement of socio-economic status such as improvement in housing and hygiene control. Also, Anti-smoking Campaign for Cancer Prevention, Cancer Screening for Early Detection and Improvement of cancer treatment modalities (Multidisciplinary Multimodality Approaches) significantly contributed to increased cancer survival rate.
Asia is composed of multiple populations with diverse ethnicity, different cultural backgrounds and economic status. Although the prevalence of cancer is diverse among countries, it is the major health agenda in all countries despite different social-economic and ethnic status. However, appropriate clinical practice guidelines for cancer prevention, screening, and treatment is not fully established yet.
In this talk, I will discuss about the current status of cancer in Korea regarding changing patterns of cancer incidence and prevalence, impact of changes of socio-economic environment in improvement in cancer control. And in the latter part of my talk, I will discuss how to cooperate among countries to overcome cancer in Asian Countries.
