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.
