Study on the incidence of certain neoplastic diseases

Because of the increased incidence of malignant pathology in individuals, prevention measures must be practically applied by screening programmes. Such measures are considered useful to increase citizens’ life quality, otherwise serious consequences for health could entail. In this context, this study comparatively presents the incidence of types of malignant pathologies found in the last quarter of 2012 and in the first quarter of 2013, in the specialized service, according to the information collated within a database. The study was made possible through collaboration with the specialty medical staff.

To evaluate the incidence of the malignant pathology across the period, the study was carried out by analyzing the types of malignant pathologies, taking into consideration the residence environment of the patients, sex, newly found and diagnosed cases, together with the cases already on records. The conclusion was that women are the most affected group, with those residing in urban areas showing the highest level of incidence. This data is of importance to the healthcare sector, especially when considering that neoplastic pathology has a harmful prognostic on both health and quality of life.

This is the basis of a paper written by researchers from the Transilvania University of Bra┼čov in collaboration with Tim Sandle.
