Background. The objective of this paper is to describe the results of Lleida’s Hospital-based Cancer Registry in 2013 and estimate the proportional contribution of cases to the populationbased cancer registry. Methods. A descriptive epidemiologic study of cancer cases living in Lleida detected by Lleida’s Hospital-based Cancer Registry (Lleida’s Arnau de Vilanova University Hospital) was carried out. Cases were recorded according to international criteria. Information sources were: hospital records CMDB (ICD-9 codes-140.0 to 208.9) and reports of pathologic anatomy. Cases observed among the residents and cases expected by Catalan’s Population-based Cancer Registry crude rates were compared. Results. 2,028 tumours – 1,184 (58.3%) in males and 844 (41%) in women – were detected, of which 1,939 (95.6%) were verified by histology. Most patients – 1,884 (93.8%) –corresponded to residents in Lleida. In men, most frequent tumours in residents were prostate (185), colon and rectum (179) and lung (136); in women were breast (227), colon and rectum (112) and uterine body (44). According to Catalan's Population-based Cancer Registry rates, 2,102 cases (1,248 in men and 854 in women) could be expected. Observed cases among men were 1,108 (88.7% coverage) and 795 in women (93.1% coverage). Coverage observed was higher than 100% in leukaemia (163.3%), melanoma skin (116.6%) and pancreas (109.7%) in men and leukaemia (154.5%), melanoma skin (116.7%) and thyroid (104.5%) in women. Conclusions. Tumour ranking in Lleida regions suggests that cancer presents certain particularities that should be investigated based on Lleida’s Population-based Cancer Registry.
