Summary 

The Oman National Cancer Registry was established in 1985 as a hospital based registry. This is the 14th annual report of cancer incidence in Oman and covers incidence and mortality for the year 2009. All cancer cases are reported to the National Cancer Registry and are coded using ICDO-3. 

The report includes a section on cancer trends from 1997-2009 and provides tables on frequency of cancers by cancer site during those years for males and females, separately. Additional tables provide incidence data broken down by 5-year age group, sex, and cancer site for the year 2009. Maps display cancer incidence by cancer site and region for 10 governorates in Oman.

Other sections in the report include childhood cancers, cancers among non-citizens in Oman, and hospital-based deaths due to cancer.

The full report is available for download from the Ministry of Health website.
