However, rates of one-year survival for patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer they are not as positive – possibly because it tends to cause no symptoms in the early stages.
Figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show what percentage of people newly diagnosed in 2015 can expect to survive to at least 2025.
The report, published in association with cancer survival Group cancer Research UK at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, showed ten years of expected survival for patients diagnosed in 2015, was higher for melanoma of the skin and more low for leukemia in men and women.
The biggest difference in one-year survival between men and women was for bladder cancer, where it is expected that 78 percent of men to survive at least one year, compared with 66.9 percent of women.
Only 25 percent of people are expected to live for five years with stomach cancer, brain, liver, lung, mesothelioma, esophagus, pancreas.
However, the ONS found five -Year survival is greater than 80 percent for breast cancer in women, testicular and prostate cancer, and thyroid cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma and skin melanoma in both sexes.
survival rates for cervical cancer are expected to be 64.3 percent, 59.9 percent of women with bowel cancer, and even lower -. 44.7 percent for leukemia
in 16 of the 24 types of cancer, one-year survival for patients diagnosed between 2010 and 2014 was slightly higher than in the overlap period 2009-2013 in at least one sex.
Two well known exceptions are breast cancer in women and prostate cancer for which one year and five year survival rates are higher among some of the older age groups the groups younger age.
for women with melanoma, 91.5 percent can be expected to be alive after a decade, while 80.6 percent should have. alive 10 years after a diagnosis of breast cancer
The figures show cancer survival is usually higher in younger patients
Rebecca Smittenaar, director of statistics of cancer Research UK, said .: “cancer survival is improving and has doubled in the last 40 years.
” for a number of cancers, including breast cancer and skin cancer, more than eight out of 10 people survive their disease.
“research has led to better treatments, new drugs, more accurate tests, earlier diagnosis and screening programs -. Give patients a better chance of survival
” survival remains low for some cancers, including lung cancer, pancreatic, esophageal cancer and brain tumors, partly because they tend to be diagnosed at a later stage, when they are much harder to treat.
“to change this Cancer Research UK has increased investment in these types of cancer and is conducting vital research to help save more lives.”
