Liver cancer had previously been found to be the most frequent tumour in necropsy material in Java. In the series, composed of biopsies only, it accounted for 36.8% of all abdominal cancers biopsied in Yogyakarta in 1973 and is thus more frequent than indicated by the total material covering a 4-year period (1970-1973).
Based on the data of the Department of Pathology and population in 1976 by utilizing the formula
the primary liver cancer incidence in 1974 through 1978 is provided.
