Women in UK more likely to die from cancer

12th November 2010

New figures have shown that women in the UK are more likely to die of cancer than in the rest of Europe.

Data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed the death rate among British women from all kinds of cancer was higher than in countries including Italy, France and Portugal. The figures, from 2007, recorded 153.7 deaths per 100,000 women in the UK, compared with an average of 131.5 deaths in the rest of the EU that year. Fewest cancer deaths were in Spain and Cyprus, each with just over 100 per 100,000 women.
