forecast 43% increase in the incidence of cancer in Iran by 1404
The results of a recent international university study published in the International Journal of Cancer show that the number of new cases of cancer in Iran will increase about 43% between 2016 and 2025. This study was designed in the form of a research proposal approved by the Research Council and the Research Ethics Committee of Golestan University of Medical Sciences. It was implemented in the international and national level with the cooperation of researchers from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), Tehran University of Medical Sciences and other universities of medical sciences in the country.
 The results of this study also showed that 29% of the increase in cancer incidence in Iran is due to demographic changes (ageing and increasing population) and 14% of this increase is due to other factors, including increased exposure to cancer risk factors.
