Female reproductive system cancers are the most common cancers in women. A significant percentage of gynecological malignancies are malignant tumors in which prognosis and treatment outcomes depend on the stage of cancer and early diagnosis. Therefore, the analysis of age-standardized rates of incidence and death among different countries, which provide different healthcare strategies, can be helpful while inventing new strategy for cancer prophylaxis and treatment. In this study we collected newest available data on female reproductive system cancers from official European data base and PubMed data base and confronted it against contemporary facts concerning three analyzed cancers, such as cervix uteri cancer, ovarian cancer, corpus uteri and other unspecified cancer. We made comparative table to clearly show dependence between four European selected countries – Poland, Czech Republic, Denmark and England. We used age-standardized rate of incidence and death as a basic tool to make comparison of given data. According to the constructed all investigated countries present increasing tendency for age-standardized rate of incidence of corpus uteri and unspecified uterine cancer. Moreover, there is visible increasing tendency for age-standardized rate of death due to corpus uteri and unspecified uterine cancer in Poland, England and Denmark. According to the analyzed data age-standardized rate of incidence of ovarian cancer in Poland seems to be slightly increased over investigated period. Furthermore, England manifests the lowest ASR of incidence and death of both uterine cervix and corpus uteri and unspecified uterine cancer, which indicates good quality of healthcare and prophylaxis. The analyzed statistic data provided by four European countries indicates that still some of them manifest significant or slight but stable increase of incidence or/and death of selected types of cancer, while the other carcinoma conditions are dropping over investigated period.
