A RESEASCH OF THE PREVALENCE CHARACTER HORMONO-RELATED FORMS OF THYROID, BREAST AND PROSTATE CANCER IN UKRAINE
Keywords:endocrine disrupters, thyroid cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer
In recent years, changes in the structure of population cancer incidence have been taking place in Ukraine. At that the number of cases of respiratory organs and stomach cancer decreases and the frequency of hormonerelated tumors increases. The mechanisms and etiological factors of this process not completely understood. The aim of this work was to study the peculiarities of the formation of priority forms of oncological incidence of endocrine and hormone-related organs (cancer of thyroid, prostate and mammary glands) and their increasing intensity during the last decades in regions with different economic activity. Materials and methods. We analyzed the territorial indexes of population cancer incidence in Ukraine using materials of the National Cancer Registry of Ukraine for the period 1999–2016 years. The results of the research. We established that the most intensive increasing of frequency of hormone-related forms of cancer was observed in the areas of predominantly agricultural, industrial and mixed activities. It was provided that probable factors, which affected this process, are anthropogenic factors, including «endocrine disruptors». The conclusion was made about the need to identify these substances in the environment for the further development of preventive measures.
