The GLOBOCAN 2018 estimates indicate that there will be 18.1 million new cases of cancer and 9.6 million deaths from cancer in 2018 and incidence is projected to increase to 21 million in 2030. Africa accounts for 5.8% of global cancer incidence and 7.3% of mortality. Cancer affects females more than males in Africa and cancer-related mortality is higher in women compared to men.1
