Methods The materials and methods of this study were the main statistical indicators for the Republic for the period 2013–2017 according to the cancer register.
Results In 2013, in the structure of the incidence rate by Uzbekistan regions the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places were taken by Bukhara region, Tashkent city and Ferghana regions with incidence rates of 2.6, 2.2 and 2.1 per 100 000 populations respectively. At the same time, in 2017, leading positions were taken by Bukhara, Tashkent and Jizakh regions with incidence rates of 3.9, 3.3 and 3.1 per 100 000 population accordingly. In 2013, there were 573 newly diagnosed cases of ovarian cancer in the Republic of Uzbekistan with incidence rate of 1.9, and 268 women died from ovarian cancer at the same year, with mortality rate of 0.9. To compare the same indicators in 2017, it can be concluded that the rate of morbidity and mortality over the past five years had increased by 0.5 and 0.4 respectively. The percentage of patients with stages III–IV in 2013 was 67.9%, and in 2017 this percentage decreased to 53.2%.
Conclusions As can be seen from the study, over the past 5 years there have been recorded trends in the growth of morbidity and mortality in Uzbekistan. Based on this study, ovarian cancer requires more attention of oncologists in terms of timely diagnosis at the early stages of malignant growth.
