Abstract

This commentary refers to ‘Cancer burden and trends in China: A review and comparison with Japan and South Korea’, by Sun et al. (2020).Lung cancer is the most common cancer and leading cause of cancer‐related deaths in China, whilst breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer among Chinese women (Fan et al., 2014; Sun et al., 2020). In contrast, lung cancer incidence has decreased in the Republic of Korea (Chang et al., 2019; Sun et al., 2020). Moreover, the incidence and mortality rates of lung cancer in both Japan and Korea are lower than in China (Sun et al., 2020). However, the incidence of breast cancer is increasing in these three countries (Fan et al., 2014; Sun et al., 2020). Based on a previous study, we have made a commentary with the aim of presenting a more in‐depth discussion of lung and breast cancer control between China and Korea from the primary care perspective.As correctly pointed out by Sun et al., the decrease in lung cancer incidence among Korean men has been mostly attributed to the successful implementation of tobacco control policies (Chang et al., 2019; Sun et al., 2020).
