Cancer cases to rise 45% by 2030

28th October 2011

A study by Cancer Research UK and published in the British Journal of Cancer, has suggested that the number of new cancer cases in the UK could rise by 45% by 2030 to more than 430,000 a year.

The rise is explained almost entirely by the expected increase in the number of people living in the UK and the ageing population but the charity says the NHS must act now to avoid being "overwhelmed".  The Department of Health said it was already responding to the challenge.
