Mizoram capital Aizawl has the maximum number of tongue cancer surpassing the figure of Bhopal which had witnessed a horrible gas tragedy over two decades ago, Dr A Nandkumar, NCRP officer in-charge told a medical conference here today.

Nagaland and Manipur showed the highest age adjusted incidence rate for nasopharyngeal cancers.

For cancer of tonsil, Darrang, Kamrup, Dibrugarh, Barpeta and Nalbari districts of Assam have the highest incidences. These districts also topped the list of oropharyngeal cancers, the doctor, also the deputy director general of the Indian Council of Medical Research, said in his presentation.

However, no figures were given.

Men of Mizoram and Assam and women of Meghalaya and Assam have the highest number of cancer of esophagus while on cancer of stomach, Mizoram, Nagaland and Sikkim are on the high.

He said China and Hong Kong topped the list of cancer of nasopharynx in the world but some Nagaland districts bordering Myanmar surpassed that record also.

Because of smoking, lung cancer among the women was on the rise in western countries but the study showed that incidences of this type of disease were even higher in women of Manipur and Mizoram who also have smoking habit.
