European Cancer Observatory (ECO)
The European Cancer Observatory (ECO) provides a comprehensive system of information on cancer burden in Europe across three web sites: EUCAN national estimates, EUREG registry data and EUROCIM downloadable data.
EUCAN presents factsheets displaying incidence, mortality and prevalence estimates for 26 major cancer sites, including cervical, ovarian and uterine disease, across 40 European countries.
EUREG is a data analysis tool presenting incidence, mortality and survival results for the major cancer sites, including cervical, ovarian, uterine and ‘other female sites’. Data can be displayed in chart or table options, by European country/cancer registry and can also be customised to present data for user defined cancer/registry groups.
EUROCIM will allow registered users to define, extract and request datasets.
The CancerMondial website provides access to various databases containing information on the occurrence of cancer worldwide. It is held and managed by the Section of Cancer Information (CIN) of the WHO International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).
