RESUMEN

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE:

The objective of the present paper is to study the incidence and survival of esophageal cancer from data of the Population-Based Cancer Registries of Zaragoza.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

Crude and adjusted incidence rates were calculated according to sex and the Joinpoint log-linear regression was utilized to calculate trends in adjusted incidence rates for the period 1978-2002. The observed survival was calculated by utilizing the Kaplan-Meier method. For relative survival, the automate calculation of the Oncology Institute of Catalonia was utilized.

RESULTS:

Joinpoint analysis revealed stability in the incidence rates with Annual Percentage Change of 0.16 (CI 95%: -0.8; 1.1) for men and 0.04 for women (CI 95%: -2.8; 2.8). Observed survival in the period 1978-2002 was 33.2% in the first year and 15.3% in the last year. Relative 1-year survival for males and females was 36.3% (CI 95%: 32.7-40.4) and 23.8% (CI 95%: 20.0-28.4) after 5 years.

CONCLUSIONS:

Data suggest that there were no significant changes in the incidence rates of esophageal cancer in the province of Zaragoza and that survival was low.
