Abstract

Purpose
This study presents the 2015 nationwide cancer statistics in Korea, including the incidence, survival, prevalence, and mortality.

Materials and Methods
Cancer incidence data from 1999 to 2015 was obtained from the Korea National Cancer Incidence Database and followed until December 31, 2016. Mortality data from 1983 to 2015 were obtained from Statistics Korea. The prevalence was defined as the number of
cancer patients alive on January 1, 2016, among all cancer patients diagnosed since 1999.
Crude and age-standardized rates (ASRs) forincidence, mortality and prevalence and 5-year relative survivals were also calculated.

Results
Herein, 214,701 and 76,855 Koreanswere newly diagnosed and died from cancerin 2015, respectively. The ASRs for cancer incidence and mortality in 2015 were 258.9 and 82.0 per 100,000, respectively. The overall cancer incidence rate has increased significantly by 3.4% annually from 1999 to 2012, and started to decrease after 2012 (2012-2015, annual percent change, –6.1%). However, the overall cancer mortality has decreased 2.7%  annually since 2002. The 5-year relative survival rate for patients diagnosed with cancer between 2011 and 2015 was 70.7%, an improvement from the 41.2% for patients diagnosed between 1993 and 1995.

Conclusion
Age-standardized cancer incidence rates have decreased since 2012 and mortality rates
have declined since 2002; however, the 5-year survival rates have improved remarkably
from 1993-1995 to 2011-2015 in Korea.
