Background The purposes of a hospital-based cancer registry are by definition different from those of a population-based registry. The purpose of the hospital-based registry is to serve the needs of the hospital administration and the hospital's cancer program, guide planning and evaluation of cancer control programs, and provide information for the national database of cancer incidence. Objective The aim of this work is to describe cancer statistics in Menoufia University Hospital among cases who had presented to the clinical oncology department in 2012–2013.

Cases with incomplete data were excluded. Results In 2012, 1413 patients presented versus 1475 patients in 2013, with a total of 2888 patients; ~52% of the cases were women and ~48% of cases were men.
