Mortality due to cancer in the ATS basin, the black jersey goes to Lodigiano

The latest data on cancer deaths in the Lodi area has once again raised concerns about the high mortality rates from tumors in the region. According to the 2022 report from the metropolitan city ATS health status portal, Lodi still holds the unfortunate distinction of having the highest rate of cancer deaths compared to other areas.

The report also highlights the chronic absence of a tumor registry in the region, which is crucial for tracking and monitoring cancer cases to better inform prevention and treatment strategies. Without this key tool, efforts to combat cancer in the Lodi area are significantly hampered.

The data reveals that the standardized rate of deaths from cancer in the Lodi area is 33.31 per 10 thousand residents per year. The report breaks down the number of cancer deaths in individual municipalities, with Lodi recording 153 deaths, followed by Casale with 60, Codogno with 55, and Sant’Angelo with 44.

The report also notes significant numbers of cancer deaths in Mulazzano, Zelo, San Colombano, Lodi Vecchio, and other municipalities in the region. However, data from several municipalities, including Abbadia, Brembio, and Castelnuovo, are missing, highlighting the need for more comprehensive and systematic data collection efforts.

The alarming statistics underscore the urgent need for increased efforts to address the high rates of cancer deaths in the Lodi area. Public health authorities and local officials must prioritize the establishment of a tumor registry and implement targeted interventions to reduce the burden of cancer in the region.
