Cancer in the elderly

Jiri Petera, Ladislav Dušek


The population in developed countries is aging and the proportion of higher age categories in the age structure is increasing. In the Czech Republic inhabitants aged over 70 years represented 7% of population in the year 1970, 10% in the year 2009 and the expectation for the year 2030 is 25%. This percentage is even higher in more developed countries in Europe and in the USA.
