Materials and Methods : In this epidemiological study, the crude incidence rate (CIR) was measured per 100,000 people and the liver cancer’s age-standardized incidence rate (ASR) was measured using direct standardization and world’s standard population.
Results : Out of 344 registered liver cancer cases, 54.4% were men and 45.6% were women. The ASR of liver cancer in 2008 was estimated 3.4 cases per 100,000 which has a significant ascending trend (p=0.001).
Conclusion : The ASR in this study shows that like other countries in West Asia, Fars Province is categorized as a region with low incidence rate.
