Tables show prevalence by gender and age groups, number of patients, and percent of the population. For some cancers, projections are made up through 2010. Percentage changes in prevalence and population between 1990 and 2004 are also presented, and broken down by sex and age groups. Cancers are coded in ICD-10.
