Aim To investigate the ovarian cancer incidence for the period 1996-2010 in the Federation Bosnia and Herzegovina (FB&H) emphasizing that there is no official cancer database for that period. Methods This retrospective study analyzed ovarian cancer incidence in the period 1996-2000 and an estimation of incidence for the period 2000-2010 based on this data, as well as on 2007-2010 incidence according to the Federal Public Health Institute. Results The incidence of ovarian cancer in the period 1996-2000 was 3.68-6.38/100.000. The estimate of incidence for the period 2000-2010 resulted with the rate of 14.6 at the end of the analyzed period. According to the Federal Public Health Institute, incidence for the period 2007-2010 was 11.4-12.4/100.000. Conclusion According to different sources incidence of ovarian cancer in the Federation B&H varies from 11.4-12.4/100.000, which is lower than the incidence for Southern Europe and neighboring countries. Incidence published by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (2008) for B&H (both entities) was 10.1/100.000. An increasing trend of incidence is evident too. However, in FB&H a cancer database does not exist, while the system of cancer registration does not function or operate without proper coordination. A further main task for health authorities is to establish a functional system of cancer registration and a database, which would enable a follow-up and work on prevention and early detection of ovarian cancer.
