In order to make a comparison of recent cancer incidence rates between Japan and other countries, we abstracted the age-standardized incidence rates (ASRs) by three age categories (0–59, 60–74, 75+) from the Cancer Incidence in Five Continents Vol. XI (CI5) (1). International Agency for Research on Cancer provides the CI5 databases on the incidence of cancer recorded by cancer registries (regional and national) worldwide. We extracted ASRs from the following cancer registries; the United States of America, Beijing in China, Mumbai in India, Hiroshima and Osaka in Japan, the Republic Korea, Gironde in France, Hamburg in Germany, the United Kingdom and Australia from the CI5-XI database. The period of years at cancer diagnosis were from 2008 to 2012. Figure 1 shows the ASRs for lung cancer coded as C33-34 (ICD10) of males. The ASRs of males who were over 75 year old in Japan (Osaka and Hiroshima), and the Republic of Korea were higher than those in other countries or regions, while the ASRs of males in aged 0-59 and 60-74 groups were almost similar among the selected countries or regions except those in India (Mumbai).

The ASRs of females who were over 75 year old in the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and China (Beijing) were higher (about 300 per 100,000), while those in Japan (Osaka and Hiroshima), Australia, the Republic of Korea, and Germany (Hamburg) were slightly lower (about 200 per 100,000). The ASRs of females in aged 60–74 group in the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and Germany (Hamburg) were slightly higher than those in other countries or regions. Figure 2.

Overall the ASRs for lung cancer of males, in particular in over 75 year old group, were higher than those of females in each country or region. This differences in Japan (Osaka and Hiroshima) and the Republic Korea were larger than other countries or regions.
