Data collected in South West Nigeria, which covers about 25% of Nigeria land mass typically shows wide spread of this disease across age-groups. However, the cox survival analysis of the data has shown that age is the main risk factor within each type of cancer for death while breast cancer constitute more than one quarter of its prevalence. Other noticeable cancer types include liver, rectum, blood, ovary, skin, prostrate and pancreas. The uncommon cancers include Epigastric, nasopharyngeal, gall bladder, bone and brain. This indicates that while previously common types of cancer still exist, cancers such as nasopharyngeal and lymph are now showing presence in that part of the world.
