The most frequent tumor was carcinoma of cervix uteri (22,2 percent) followed by that of the breast (11 percent), the uterus exclusive of the cervix (2,6 percent) and ovary (2,6 percent), the vulva and vagina (1 percent), and the placenta (0,1 percent). Breast, cervical, and uterine neoplasms were infrequent before the 24th year; conversely, 16,3 percent of the ovarian tumors occurred before that age. Tumors of the ovary and cervix predominated in the age group from 25 to 34 years old (23,8 percnet). Uterine cancer predominated in the group from 45 to 54 years with 26,3 percent, which rose to 41,7 percent in women 55 and older.
