Cancer survival rates widely vary

10th December 2008

New figures show that cancer survival rates in England have remained static.

However, wide variations still exist between five-year survival rates for different types of cancer, according to Office for National Statistics data for 2005, which are the latest available. Of the men diagnosed in England in 2000 with testicular cancer 96% survived five years, as did 81% of women diagnosed with breast cancer, the same for the previous year. It was a similar picture for five-year survival rates from lung cancer, static at 7% for men and 8% for women.
