Relevance: Globocan reports 19.3 million new cases of malignant neoplasms in 2020 globally. Mammary gland cancer has
become the most commonly diagnosed oncological pathology, followed by lung, colon and rectum, prostate, and stomach
cancers. In Uzbekistan, malignant neoplasms of the breast, stomach, cervix, lungs, and brain dominate the structure of cancer
The study aimed to analyze the cancer incidence trends and structure in the Republic of Uzbekistan in 2020.
Results: In 2020, 21976 new cancer cases were registered in Uzbekistan. The ratio of men and women newly diagnosed
with cancer was 0.7:1.4. Cancers of the breast, cervix, and ovary were the most common in women; cancers of the stomach,
lung, and prostate — in men. Hemoblastoses were more common at a young age, breast cancer – at working age, and stomach
cancer – at old age.
Conclusions: The statistical information analysis showed that in 2020 the cancers of the mammary gland, stomach, and
cervix were leading in the overall cancer structure, with significant differences in different age categories. This determines the
need for further improvement of cancer care in Uzbekistan.
