Cancer morbidity structure

(analysis based on UK statistics

for 2014 - 2016)

 

The analysis is based on UK statistics. Based on data for 2014-2016. Data is taken from https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer

 

Of course, there is data for a longer period of time. They are very interesting and important. But in this text we limit ourselves to the latest trends in cancer incidence.

 

UK data is of high quality. It is clear that they can not be representative for the whole world. There are many factors that make cancer incidence quite specific for different regions of the world.
