Cancer Incidence and Mortality Rates in Bermuda

This paper presents for the first time the incidence and mortality rates of cancer in Bermuda. Age-adjusted incidence rates were also compared to those of the United States of America. Differences existed in specific cancer sites but global rates were similar in both countries.


Objective: To describe cancer and mortality rates in Bermuda and to compare such rates to those of the United States of America (USA).

Methods: Age-adjusted race-specific cancer incidence rates for Bermuda were calculated using the Bermuda Cancer Registry. These rates were then compared to USA cancer rates published by the National Cancer Institute.
