Animated maps of cancer incidence and mortality
The Nordic cancer map animations show the geographical variation of cancer incidence over the period 1971-2010. These animations are accessible directly through NORDCAN using the selection below. For the entities “Bladder etc” and ”Brain, central nervous system” the new additional codes (bladder: D09.0, D30.1, D41.1-9 and brain: D35.2-4, D44.3-5) are not yet included and the incidence level seen in map might be slightly lower than in the remaining NORDCAN.
