    Background: Cancer registration provides data that can be utilized to study the etiology, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer. Despite the efforts of the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer registration is still underdeveloped in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This is the case in Lagos, Nigeria. Lakeshore Cancer Center (LCC) sought to retrospectively collect and describe the characteristics of the patients seen in its first 2 y of existence.
