This Committee met in Lausanne in could 1968 and determined that the monograph on melanoma prevalence in 5 Continents, which have been released via the UICC tw~ years formerly, were so important moment quantity can be released once a suf­ ficient volume of recent fabric will be amassed. The Committee delegated the accountability for the construction of this quantity to the Editors of the unique monograph and to the Honorary Secretary of the Committee, Dr C. S. Muir. Mr P.

Example text

Salivary gland (ICD 142) The tendency for salivary gland tumours to recur is well known. Malignancy may thus be determined on behaviour rather than on cytological evidence. In view of the lack of standard criteria, comparison of incidence rates should not be undertaken without consideration of local practice. Large intestine and rectum (ICD 153 and 154) It is comparatively easy to decide whether a neoplasm is situated in the lower rectum or the descending colon. The ICD requires neoplasms of the "rectosigmoid (junction)" to be allocated to rectum (ICD 154), yet it may be very difficult to decide whether a neoplasm is in the sigmoid colon proper or in the rectosigmoid area.

This will undoubtedly remain so until there are uniformly accepted methods of c1as· sification, such as those proposed by the Cancer Unit of WHO (WHO 1967, 1968, 1969). In spite of the difficulties, the Committee on. Cancer Incidence of the UICC thought that the potential gain was so great that it would be wortl exploring the possibility of reporting the incidence of neoplasms of different types at certain sites, if only to be able to assess the problems involved. It therefore formed a sub-committee to investigate and report on the problem (see Chapter I).
