Analysis of five most common cancers as below. Result: Liver cancer most of them were male 69.8%, mean age 59.7 years (SD=10.8).The overall survival rate for 5 years was 3.9%. The 5-year stage-specific survivals had 100% for stage I, II, 5.6% for stage III and 3.4% for stage IV, respectively. Breast cancer most of them were female 99.4%, mean age 51.3 years (SD=10.5). The overall survival rate for 5 years was 66.3%. The 5-year stage-specific survivals had 90.70% for stage I, 75.44% for stage II, 61.7% for stage III and 26.0% for stage IV, respectively.
