Testis Cancer (TC) is the most common cancer in 15-39 year-old men and with the white Caucasian race. This
cancer consists of 0.7 percent of men’s cancer all over the world. The aim of this study is to investigate the
relationship between the Age-Standardised Incidence Rates (ASIR) and Age-Standardised Mortality Rates (ASMR)
of TC with Human Development Index (HDI) and its components at the European countries in 2012. This study was
an ecologic study in European countries for assessment the correlation between ASIR and ASMR with HDI and its
details including: Life expectancy at birth, Mean years of schooling and Gross National Income (GNI) per capita.
We use correlation bivariate method for assessment the correlation between SIR and SMR with HDI and its
components. Data of study was analyzed by SPSS15statistical analysis software; the significance level of the tests
was considered P˂0.05. The results of the data investigation showed that the maximum ASIR of TC was observed
respectively in the countries of Norway, Switzerland, and Denmark. Moreover findings showed the highest ASMR
was in the countries of Hungary, Bulgaria and FYR Macedonia. The ASIR was positively correlated with HDI equal
to 0.623(p≤0.001), with Life expectancy at birth equal to 0.602(p≤0.001), with the average years of schooling equal
to 0.339(p=0.032) and with country’s Gross National Income (GNI) per capita equal to 0.466(p=0.002).The ASMR
was negatively correlated with HDI equal to 0.537(p≤0.001), life expectancy at birth equal to

0.598(p≤0.001),average years of schooling equal to 0.107(p=0.510) and with counter’s GNI per capita equal to
0.521(p≤0.001). Data from this study shows importance of using HDI and its components as relative factor on the
ASIR and ASMR of TC.
