[Purpose] To investigate the characteristics of cancer incidence in China from cancer registration data, 2004. [Methods] The data of all cancer new cases were collected from population-based cancer regis-tration database in 37 local cancer registries in China. The data were sorted, checked and analyzed accord-ing to "China Cancer Registration Guideline"and "Cancer Registration: Principles and Methods, IARC". [Result] The total new cancer cases were 144262 with incidence of 250.03/105 in 2004. Cancer incidence in male was higher than that in female (278.93/105 and 220.39/105, respectively). Lung cancer was the most common cancer in cancer registration areas, followed by stomach cancer, liver cancer, esophageal cancer and breast cancer. In urban areas, the top 5 cancer sites were lung, stomach, breast, liver and colorectal, with overall incidence of 255.48/105(male 274.74/105, female 235.65/105). In rural areas, the top 5 cancer sites were stomach, esophagus, liver, lung and breast with overall incidence of 233.96/105(male 291.37/105, fe-male 175.79/105). [Conclusion] Lung cancer, stomach cancer, esophageal cancer, liver cancer, and breast cancer were the major cancers in cancer registration areas.
