Now 10 Fukushima children believed to have cancer
A Fukushima Prefectural Government panel said Wednesday that two people who were 18 or younger when the triple-meltdown crisis started at the Fukushima No. 1 atomic complex in March 2011 have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, bringing the total cases to three.

Reporting at a meeting on the health impact from the catastrophe, professor Shinichi Suzuki of Fukushima Medical University said it is too early to link the cases to the nuclear disaster, because it took at least four to five years for thyroid cancer to be detected after the Chernobyl meltdown calamity that started in 1986.

The three people have been doing well since undergoing surgery, according to Suzuki.

Kyodo: 10 Fukushima children believed to have cancer — 70% female — Several already had surgery for thyroid

The three people have been doing well since undergoing surgery, according to Suzuki.

[...] 38,000 were checked in fiscal 2011, and 10, including the three thyroid cancer cases, are believed to be suffering some form of cancer. The average age of the 10 is around 15, and seven are female. [...]
Suzuki says, “It took at least four to five years for thyroid cancer to be detected after the Chernobyl meltdown.”

United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to health Anand Grover, who spent 11 days in Japan during November 2012, may not agree:

“Chernobyl is not a good example, whose study in the first three years was a blackout. So we don’t have data.” (Source)
“There was a clamp down of information that made it impossible linking them up in the first years after Chernobyl.” (Source)

According to:
[link to seer.cancer.gov]

Men: 5,9 Cases of 100.000 - Woman: 17,3 Cases of 100.000

In Fukushima Prefecture we have ca. 3.000.000 People!

We see not a sharp increase, at the moment,
in fact our Numbers are much, much lower than in the USA!

Do not forget that Thyroid Cancer is one of the most easiest to heal:
It is estimated that 56,460 men and women (13,250 men and 43,210 women) will be diagnosed with and 1,780 men and women will die of cancer of the thyroid in 2012

Is Thyroid Cancer in Children Rare in Japan?


Tweets that get retweeted by people in Japan that I follow have been abuzz with the talk given by Dr. Helen Caldicott, whom Mr. Kouta Kinoshita has invited to speak in several cities in Japan. Many seem to be freaking out, particularly as the news of another case of thyroid cancer found among Fukushima children broke at the same time and Dr. Caldicott states it is extremely rare for children to have thyroid cancer.

Is it that rare?

People on Twitter are saying "2 cases [actually one confirmed case in September and one suspected case this time] of thyroid cancer among 114,000 children tested so far in Fukushima, that's extraordinarily high, not seen anywhere else in the world! It's usually one in several millions for children!"

So I decided to look for the data on thyroid cancer cases by sex and age, and found it at Japan's National Cancer Center's website for cancer statistics.

According to Center for Cancer Control and Information Services, National Cancer Center, Japan (from their excel sheet cancer_incidence(1975-2007).xls):

Number of cases in 2007

male:
age 0 - 14: zero
age 15 - 19: 14

female:
age 0 - 9: zero
age 10 -14: 6
age 15 - 19: 41


Disease rates in 2007 (cases per 100,000)

male:
age 0 - 14: zero
age 15 - 19: 0.4

female:
age 0 - 9: zero
age 10 - 14: 0.2
age 15 - 19: 1.3


The sex and the age of the child with the confirmed case have not been disclosed, but the second suspected case is a girl in her late teens, between 16 and 18 years old, as disclosed by the Fukushima Medical University committee.

There are total 365,590 children in Fukushima aged 0 to 19 as of October 2011, according to the Fukushima prefectural government data. (Excel sheet)
