Most Common Cancers in Oman

In the year 2010, the annual report from the Ministry of Health confirms previous findings that cancer is not yet a major public health problem in Oman. The country appears to be one of the lowest in comparison to industrialized countries. Although breast cancer incidence is on increase over the past few years, it remains low compare to other GCC countries as reported by the recent GCC report publication.

In the year 2013, the annual report from the Ministry of Health deals with several major themes regarding cancer in Oman. From the epidemiological standpoint, breast cancer has moved from the fourth to the second position as compared to 2012 data, followed by colorectal, and finally urinary bladder among the ten most common cancers in Oman.
