About this data
See information and explanations on terminology used for statistics and reporting of cancer, and the methods used to calculate some of the statistics are also available
We would like to acknowledge the essential work of the cancer registries in the United Kingdom and Ireland Association of Cancer Registries, without which there would be no data.
