The highest incidence rate was related to year 2010 (%30) and uterus cancers including body & endometrial was more common than others ( %42.7). The association between cancer incidence and age (p<.001) also disease occurrence and marital status (p=.03) were seen statistically significant. Cancers of uterus and cervix among subjects with age above 50 and cancer of ovary among females under 30 years was more common.
