Updated profile of the cancer burden, patterns, and trends in Latin America and the Caribbean

A new article by scientists from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in partnership with regional collaborators reports on the cancer burden in 32 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. This updated profile is based on the estimates of national cancer incidence and mortality compiled as part of the IARC GLOBOCAN 2020 database.

The new report, published in The Lancet Regional Health – Americas, examines the relative magnitude and patterns of cancer across Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. It includes comparisons with the cancer profiles of the USA and Spain.
