INTRODUCTION:

We present the case for the establishment of hospital tumour registries in order to facilitate the use of epidemiological data and the development of preventive policies.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

Retrospective descriptive analysis of the data of the tumour registry of the Hospital "La Paz" including tumoral location (ICD-O), diagnostic method, tumour grade and treatment.

RESULTS:

1987 cases were included. Median age at diagnosis was 66.2 years; 53.3% of cases were male and 46.7 female. The most frequent tumoral sites recorded were the digestive tract, skin, breast and urinary tract. The most common diagnostic method used was biopsy (83.1%), followed by cytology (5.7%). 84.5% of cases were originally recorded as localized disease, whilst 15.4% were disseminated. Surgery was the most common treatment (78.8%), followed by systemic therapy (16.2%).

CONCLUSION:

The establishment of hospital tumour registries should be prioritized, in order to collect epidemiological data which will enhance our understanding of cancer.
