Recent epidemiological studies from various countries point at the mounting incidence of cancer. This continuous increase in the number of cancer cases will keep its pace in the future. The lifetime risk of cancer for people born since 1960 is forecast to be more than 50%. Thus cancer becomes the major health problem, and policy-makers should plan ahead how to implement effective prevention programs, on the one hand, and optimize the strategy for better diagnosis, treatment and surveillance of cancer patients on the other hand.
