Nurse administers medication during chemotherapy session at Hospital da Lagoa. In Brazil, the Inca surveys show that leukemia is the most common type of cancer.

Experts estimate that by 2030 spending on the treatment of cancer patients reach $ 8 billion. Only diseases derived from tobacco can cost $ 133 billion. In the United States, it is estimated that without further measures, the number of malignant tumors should increase by 70% by 2030 in the middle-income countries and 82% in poor countries.

In Brazil, studies of the National Cancer Institute (INCA) show that leukemia is the most common type in most populations, corresponding to 25% or 35% of all types, with the acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) the most frequent in children 0-14 years.

According to the data of the Inca, lymphomas represent the third most common type of cancer in developed countries. In developing countries, correspond to second place, behind only the leukemias. In India alone, 70% of all cancer deaths occur in the range of 35 to 69 years, reducing the life of victims in two decades on average, according to the country's authorities.

Representatives of several scientific organizations researching the prevention and cure of cancer argue that it is essential to expand investments in research and public policy. The director of the Center for Research on Global Health in Toronto, Canada, Prabhat Jha, appealed to political leaders deem more attention to the subject.
