Introduction: The objective was to describe the results of Lleida’s hospital tumor registry in the year 2012 and estimate the proportional contribution of these cases in the Lleida’s population- based cancer registry. Methods: A descriptive epidemiologic study of cancer cases living in Lleida that were detected by Lleida’s hospital tumor registry (Arnau de Vilanova University Hospital, Lleida) was carried out. The cases were recorded according to the international criteria. The sources of information were: discharge records at the minimum basic data set (CMDB) (ICD-9-CM codes, 208,9-140.0 ranks), pathological anatomy reports, and the hematology patient registry. Cases identified among the residents and those expected according to Tarragona’s population-based cancer registry crude rates were compared. Results:1,922 tumors were detected, 1,150 (59.8%) in males and 772 (40,2%) in women. Histological verification of 1,772 tumors (92.2%) was carried out. Most patients, 1,765 (93.3%), corresponded to residents in Lleida. In resident men, most frequent tumors were colon and rectum (190), prostate (180) and lung (144).In women were breast (218), colon and rectum (118) and non- melanoma skin cancer (62). According to Tarragona’s population-based cancer registry rates, 2,126 cases (1,310 in men and 816 in women) might be expected. Observed cases among men were 941 (71.8% coverage) and 668 in women (81.9% coverage). A coverage greater than 100% was observed for kidney (153,3), leukemia (104.7%) and pancreas (104%) in men and for lung (134,4%), brain (121,4%) and kidney (120%) in women. Conclusions: The ranking of tumors in Lleida regions suggests that cancer presents certain particularities that should be investigated from Lleida’s population-based cancer registry.
