Keywords:Neoplasms, Incidence, Mortality, Time series studies
Objective: To analyze the temporal trend of the incidence and mortality rate for prostate, breast, colorectal, lung, cervical, stomach and larynx cancer among residents in the city of Cuiabá between 2008 and 2016. Methods: Time series study with data from the Mortality Information System and the Population-Based Cancer Registry. Stratified by sex, the proportional distribution of new cases and deaths by age group and cancer incidence and mortality rates standardized by the world population were calculated. Linear regression was used and annual percentage change (ACP) was estimated. Results: In males, most new cases and deaths, for the main types of cancer, occurred among those aged 50 years or more, and the incidence rate of prostate cancer showed a tendency to decrease in the period (ACP=-4.33%). For females, the proportion of new cases and deaths, due to breast and cervical cancer, were more frequent among women aged 50 years or less, and lung, stomach and colorectal cancer among women aged 50 years or more. The incidence rate of breast cancer showed an increasing trend (ACP=3.60%). For both sexes, the mortality rate was stable. Conclusion: The incidence rate trend varied between sexes, an increase was observed for breast cancer among women and a reduction for prostate cancer among men. The mortality rate for the main types of cancer was stable.
