Abstract : Cancer is a generic word for a large group of diseases that can then invade adjacent parts of the organ and/or spread to other organs by the growth of abnormal cells beyond their usual limits. It is the world's second leading cause of death, estimated for 9.6 million deaths in 2018. Lung, prostate, colorectal, stomach and liver cancer are the most common types of cancer in men, while breast, colorectal, lung, cervix and thyroid cancer are the most common among women. Until now, the result is inevitable cancer sufferings and fatalities with the limitation of cancer control and cancer treatment centers in India, the only efficient way to address the increasing and humongous cancer burden is to focus on preventable cases of cancer where spatial factors play a critical part. Under this circumstance, the study starts the way to explore the relationship between Cancer Incidences and variables adding to it spatially and specifically, to improve long term public health. Reviewing these factors may contribute to the future design of preventive approaches for wider application.

Keywords : Cancer, Non Genetic Factors, Spatial, Environment, Cancer Mapping.
