The article examines environmentally-spatial specifics of morbidity spread in Kryvyi Rih region (Kryvbas). Different approaches to the identification of medical geographic areas are analysed. The paper proposes a typology of diseases, according to which environmental and geopathogenic areas are defined. There were researched spacial specifics of cancer morbidity spread on the territories of Kryvyi Rih over a ten-year period (2007–2017), namely in Southern environmentally-geopathogenic area, whose territory accommodates the majority of enterprises of metallurgical complex. There was established a dependence of oncopathologies spread on the distance to stationary pollution sources. Such a dependence confirms the universal spatial regularity of disease spread pursuant to a “semi-periphery” model.
