Summary of "Cancer Incidence and Incidence Rates in Japan in 2004: Based on Data from 14 Population-based Cancer Registries in the Monitoring of Cancer Incidence in Japan (MCIJ) Project."

The Japan Cancer Surveillance Research Group estimated the cancer incidence in 2004 as part of the Monitoring of Cancer Incidence in Japan (MCIJ) project, on the basis of data collected from 14 of 31 population-based cancer registries. The total number of incidences in Japan for 2004 was estimated as 623 275 (C00-C96). The leading cancer site according to the crude and age-standardized incidence rates was the stomach for men and breast for women. The apparent increase in age-standardized incidence rates in 2003 was calmed down in 2004.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The total number of cases of a given disease in a specified population at a designated time. It is differentiated from INCIDENCE, which refers to the number of new cases in the population at a given time.

Information application based on a variety of coding methods to minimize the amount of data to be stored, retrieved, or transmitted. Data compression can be applied to various forms of data, such as images and signals. It is used to reduce costs and increase efficiency in the maintenance of large volumes of data.

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)

Various conditions with the symptom of HEADACHE. Headache disorders are classified into major groups, such as PRIMARY HEADACHE DISORDERS (based on characteristics of their headache symptoms) and SECONDARY HEADACHE DISORDERS (based on their etiologies). (International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd ed. Cephalalgia 2004: suppl 1)

Various units or machines that operate in combination or in conjunction with a computer but are not physically part of it. Peripheral devices typically display computer data, store data from the computer and return the data to the computer on demand, prepare data for human use, or acquire data from a source and convert it to a form usable by a computer.
