The burden of malignancy in adolescents and young adults in Jamaica is greater in females. In both genders, increasing age is accompanied by increased incidence rates and a progressive shift from non-epithelial to epithelial malignancies. This shift occurs earlier in females.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the distribution of malignancies in adolescents and young adults (AYA; 15 to 29
years) in Jamaica.

A Fifty-year Review of Soft Tissue Sarcomas in Jamaica: 1958–2007

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.168
Pages: 
692–7
Synopsis: 
A high proportion of soft tissue sarcomas in Jamaica are unclassified and the anatomical distribution of common classified sarcomas shows some differences with the literature. Limited access to immunohistochemistry/ molecular diagnostics and increasing core biopsy diagnosis may contribute to these phenomena.
