Oesophageal Cancer – CMScript

The 2011 National Cancer Registry (NCR) report shows that oesophageal cancer (OC) is the 7th most common cancer in males (5.56 per 100 000 age standardised incidence rate) and the 9th most common cancer in females (3.06 per 100 000 age standardised incidence rate). In Southern Africa, the incidence of OC is nearly double in males (13.7 per 100 000 age standardised incident rate) and about (6.7 per 100 000 age standardised incident rate) for females. Men are about three times more likely than women to develop oesophageal cancer. The chances of developing oesophageal cancer increase with age.
