Prevalence rates that describe the amount of cancer patients under the oncological follow-up were calculated on the database of National Cancer Registry. Quality of data about 989 637 patients registered as alive in oncological institutions of Ukraine at the beginning of 2011 has been analyzed. The leading sites of cancer in prevalence structure has been determined; for male population they are: skin, prostate gland, lung, bladder and colorectal cancer (58.2% in total), for female population they are: breast, skin and female genital organs (67.0%).
