INTROCUCTION: Bladder cancer is the most common tumor of urinary system. Regarding the previous studies, it seems to have high incidence rate in Kurdistan province. This research was aimed to identify the incidence rate of bladder cancer and demographic charaeteristics of the patients from 1994 to 1999.
MATERIALS & METHODS: All patients with bladder cancer that diagnosed from 1994 to 1999 were included in the study. This was a descriptive research and 192 patients were studied. Data was collected from the patient`s file.
RESULTS: The total number of the patients with bladder cancer were 192 cases. Of thses, 160 cases (83.3%) were male and 32 cases (16.7%) were female. Thirtheen cases (6.8%) had less than 40-year-old age. Mean age of the patients were 62.55 years (SD=12.96). Regarding our study, incidence rate of bladder cancer in Kurdistan province from 1994 to 1999 was 3.3/100000 population in each year.
Other result showed that 62% of the patients were village resident. The patients had equal distribution throughout the province. However, there was some limitations to demonstrate dwelling place of all patients. In pathological point of view, 97.9% of tumors were transitional cell carcinoma (TCC). Of these, 26% were grade I, 50% grade II, and 24% grade III.
CONCLUSIONS: Regarding our study, the incidence rate of bladder cancer in Kurdistan province is more than most areas throughout the world. The mean age of the patients is also low. So, complementary studies to demonstrate risk factors of bladder cancer in the province is recommended.
