Abstract

Objectives: Cancer is a very important health problem not only in Korea but also in the worldwide. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between cancer screening and health checkup rate and the incidence and mortality rate for cancer in Seoul. Methods: Among the database data constructed from 62 data sources, 435 indicators, and 1995 items surveyed in 17 cities/provinces and 254 cities/counties/districts from 2008 to 2016 under the leadership of the CDC. In this study use the data from 2009 to 2013. Pearson's correlation and multiple linear regression were used to examine the relationship between cancer screening and health checkup rate and the incidence and mortality rate for cancer in Seoul. Results: The overall OR between cancer screening and health checkup rate and all causes cancer incidence rates 2.28(95% CI 1.366, 3.807), 2.22 (95% CI 1.310, 3.772) and adjusted OR with covariates 1.64 (95% CI 1.001, 2.681), 1.30 (95% CI 0.697, 2.429). And overall OR with all causes cancer mortality rates 0.51(95% CI 0.369, 0.696), 0.35 (95% CI 0.259, 0.466) and 0.74 (95% CI 0.542, 1.008) and 0.50 (95% CI 0.342, 0.720). Conclusions: It was found that the cancer screening and the health checkup rates in Seoul were related to all cancer incidence and mortality rate. Especially, the higher the screening rate, the more the mortality rate decreased. Therefore, we can confirm the usefulness of the national screening project, and plan to increase the screening rate for the improvement of public health and cancer mortality rate.
