ANALYSIS OF SOME STATISTICAL INDICATORS OF UVEAL MELANOMA INCIDENCE IN THE REPUBLIC OF BELARUS FOR THE PERIOD OF 2000-2009
Objectives. To study the uveal melanoma incidence and mortality as well as statistical indicators reflecting the state of its diagnosis and treatment dynamics in the Republic of Belarus
Methods. The analysis of cancer register data of the Republic of Belarus was performed.
Results. In the period of 2000–2009 757 people in Belarus fell ill with the uveal melanoma. Standardized incidence rates for these years were equal to 0,4–0,7 ppm, the incidence rates among male and female were almost similar. The uveal melanoma incidence rates in urban residents were higher than those in villagers, but that excess was not statistically significant. There were some differences in incidence rates among the regions of Belarus. Positive changes in diagnosis were noted. Standardized mortality rates amounted to 0,1-0,2 ppm. The accumulation of contingents index has 1,5 times increased and the number of patients observed for more than five years 3.4 times increased over these years.
Conclusions. Over a ten-year period in Belarus the number of patients with uveal melanoma has2, 3 times increased. The standardized incidence and mortality rates for the whole population of the Republic were almost stable during the analyzed period, the accumulation of contingent index has 1,5 times increased, the number of patients observed for the reason of the disease for 5 and more years 16% increased over ten years.
