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.
