Cancer among the circumpolar Inuit, 1989-2003: II. Patterns and trends / Circumpolar Inuit Cancer Review Working Group.

Title: Cancer among the circumpolar Inuit, 1989-2003: II. Patterns and trends / Circumpolar Inuit Cancer Review Working Group.
Author (corporate): Circumpolar Inuit Cancer Review Working Group.
Date: 2008.
In: International Journal of Circumpolar Health. (2008.), Vol. 67(5) (2008)
Abstract: Presents analysis of Inuit cancer cases by age-sex group and anatomic site. Finds cancer to be increasing among Inuit, in all regions, and among both men and women; also Inuit to be at extreme high risk (relative to non-Inuit and global populations) for historically recognised "traditional" cancers (e.g. cancer of nasopharynx and salivary glands). Among "modern" cancers prevalent in developed societies, lung cancer is increasing in incidence (especially in Canada) to extent that rate in Inuit men and women is highest in world.
