PARDO, Constanza; GUZMAN, Jainer  e  RODRIGUEZ, Omnaresi. Cancer in the Huila Cancerology Unit, 2006-2008. rev.colomb.cancerol. [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.2, pp.62-68. ISSN 0123-9015.

Objective: To characterize the new cases of cancer in the Huila Cancerology Unit. Methods: A descriptive study that included patients with cancer recorded in the Hospital Cancer Registry for the period 2006-2008. A general analysis was performed and a specific one for four locations, and information on children. Frequency and central tendency measurement were used to summarize the categorical and numerical variables. Results: A total of 2,689 new cases of cancer were analyzed. The mean age was 55 years, and the majority resided in Huila. The primary locations were: breast, neck of the cervix, stomach, skin, and hematopoietic system. The most frequent diagnoses in children were, leukemias, lymphomas, and sarcomas. At the time the information was collected, 18.4% of the patients had died. Conclusions: The results are similar to the behavior of the disease in the INC and in the country. The maintenance of hospital cancer registers in this institution will help to understand the behavior of cancer in location order, and lead to actions for the control of the cancer.
