Abstract

Punjab, once the leader of green revolution in India, is now suffering from adverse consequences of contaminated water from rapid industrialization and excessive use of chemical fertilizers for high yield of crops. As more and more states practice the agricultural practices followed in Punjab the fear amongst the medical faculty is that the cancer scenario in Punjab will be replicated in other states as well. Therefore apart from Government initiatives, institution base cancer registries are also an indispensible tool in analyzing the spectrum of cancer in population. We hereby present the spectrum of non-hematological malignancies analyzed through over institution based cancer registry.

Keywords:
Cancer, Punjab, Spectrum, Non-hematological
