Abstract

Objective. To study the dynamics of incidence and mortality from thyroid cancer in Ukraine and Zaporizhzhia region in the twentieth and early twenty-first century.

Materials and methods. Review of specialized literature was performed; statistical reporting forms were analyzed.

Results. Statistical record of thyroid cancer in Ukraine has been conducted since 1989. Thus, in 1989, the incidence among men was 1.01, and in 2004 it was already 1.92, for women these rates were 3.54 and 7.24 per 100 thousand population, respectively. The total incidence of thyroid cancer in Ukraine in 2012 was 5.5 per 100 thousand population, among men – 2.2, and among women – 8.3 per 100 thousand population. The total incidence of thyroid cancer in 2002 in the Zaporizhzhia region was 2.1 per 100 thousand population, among men and women – 1.3 and 2.9 per 100 thousand population, respectively. The total incidence of thyroid cancer in 2002 in the Zaporizhzhia region was 2.1 per 100 thousand population, among men and women – 1.3 and 2.9 per 100 thousand population, respectively.

Conclusions. There is an increase in the incidence of thyroid cancer in Ukraine, especially among women. So, for the period 1989–2012, the incidence of thyroid cancer in men and women increased by 115 % and 137 %, respectively. The annual incidence of thyroid cancer in males and females was 5 % and 6 %, respectively. In the Zaporizhzhia region, for the past 14 years, the incidence of thyroid cancer in males and females has increased by 100 % and 310 %, respectively. The annual increase in the incidence of thyroid cancer for men and women in the Zaporizhzhia region was 7.1 % and 22 %, respectively. Mortality from cancer of the thyroid gland in the Zaporizhzhia region in men and women increased by 50 % and 57 %, respectively. The highest incidence of thyroid cancer in the studied period is observed in the city of Kyiv, Kyiv region, Vinnytsia region, and the lowest – in the Zakarpattіa region, Ivano-Frankivsk region and Ternopil region.
