Results:

The standardized mortality rate of malignant tumors in the residents of Zhuanqiao Town from 2013 to 2017 was 128.05/105, and the rate was higher in males than that in females. The top four cancers regarding PYLL were lung cancerliver cancerstomach cancer and colorectal cancer, which were roughly the same order as the top four regarding the mortality. This indicates that these four cancers had a greater impact on residents. Lung cancer had a greater impact on female life expectancy.
