Abstract

Cancer data helps health care systems in many ways as they are imperative to identify true disease burden of a country, identify risk groups and to find the best way of management. More importantly, it helps to observe inter-regional variability of a cancer as genetic and epigenetic factors contributing to such diseases can vary from region to region. Developing nations are plagued with inadequate and poorquality cancer data because nationwide healthcare data collecting systems are rudimentary. To make the matters worse, there are issues in sustaining these programs such as slowness of health care workers in accepting its importance and inadequate funding. Therefore, institution based surveys are extremely valuable to get a reflection of the real situation in such countries with regard to cancer management.
