Quan Xunfeng, Lü Hua, Wang Yigao
A retrospective survey on the death form cancer from 1990 to 1992 has been made in order to find status quo of esophagus cancer in Anhui Province. The survey shows that the cancer ranks the second among all causes of death, being markedly higher than that from 1974 to 1976. The standard mortality rate of esophagus cancer from 1990 to 1992 is 17 99 over 100 000 , ranking the second and tending to increase. The mortality of esophagus cancer increases with age, affecting most those over 50 years old. The mortality in male is higher and the sex ratio 1 92∶1. Many patients are diagnosed in county hospitals, up to 43%. Those diagnosed by pathological and/or cytological method increases obviously, up to 31 2%. In addition, the mortality in countryside is higher markedly than that in cities. It is suggested that geographical conditions, diet habits and genetic factors are related to esophagus cancer and the treatment and prevention for those aged 35 to 80 and the role of county hospitals should be strenthened.
