Cancer trends and projections

Each year we produce short reports on trends for different cancer types based on the data we collect. These reports describe case numbers, age profile, geographic distribution, international differences in incidence, stage at diagnosis, treatment patterns, and mortality and survival rates. We have also produced projections of future case-numbers for a range of cancer sites.
