A decreasing survival with increasing extent of disease was noted for all cancers.The population-based cancer registry in Manila called the Philippine Cancer Society-Manila Cancer Registry (PCS-MCR), was established in 1983 as an offshoot of the then ongoing cancer registration activity under the central tumour registry of the Philippines since 1968.Data are collected from hospital tumour registries and other records maintained at these places.The registry covers an area of 274.2 km and caters to an entirely urban population of about 5.1 million in 1995 with a sex ratio of 1046 females to 1000 males.The proportion of histologically verified diagnosis for various cancers ranged between 78–88%; 74–83% of the total submitted cases were included for survival analysis.
Follow-up has been carried out by passive and active methods, with median follow-up ranging between 15–33 months for different cancers.
Five-year age-standardized relative survival rates was the highest for cancer of the breast (52%) followed by colon (49%), cervix (36%) and rectum (31%).
Five-year relative survival by age group did not display any pattern or trend and was fluctuating.
Among females, the order is breast, cervix and ovary.
PCS-MCR has been contributing data to the quinquennial IARC publication Cancer Incidence in Five Continents since Vol VI.The sources of registration, besides coordination with the Department of Health-Rizal Cancer Registry, include hospitals in the government and private sectors, consultants, pathology laboratories and imaging centres.
