Incidence of Pancreatic Cancer Cases in Dr. Soedarso Hospital Pontianak

Dery Wahyudi, Sari Eka Pratiwi


Background: Pancreatic cancer has a poor prognosis, and the symptoms are difficult to be detected early in the early stages. Indonesia Statistics on 2004–2007 states that pancreatic cancer is not included in the 10 cancers with the highest incidence. In West Kalimantan. There are no published data related to pancreatic cancer cases. This is the reason for the researchers because this data is sufficiently needed to support other studies related to pancreatic cancer.

Methods: Epidemiological studies were conducted in the form of data collection at Dr. Soedarso Hospital Pontianak. Data were retrieved from cases of pancreatic cancer regression in annual Morbidity Data of Pancreatic Cancer Patients in Dr. Soedarso Hospital Pontianak from 2018 until 2009 consisting of the frequency of new cases and deaths, as well as demographic data such as age and gender of patients. Data were processed using Microsoft Excel.

Results: A total of 79 cases and 9 deaths caused by pancreatic cancer were recorded in Dr. Soedarso Hospital Pontianak from January 2009 to December 2018. The highest incidence rates occurred in 2014 with 17 out of 79 cases (21.5%). As many as 63.3% of pancreatic cancer cases are dominated by men. Most cases of pancreatic cancer in patients with the age range of 45-64 years (67.1%) and the average age is 53.8 years.

Conclusions: Incidence of pancreatic cancer in Dr. Soedarso Hospital Pontianak each year of 7.9 cases. Men and elderly people dominate cases of pancreatic cancer. Further study of the clinical characteristics and analysis of risk factors in patients with pancreatic cancer needs to be done to support preventive strategy development.
