Laryngeal cancer statistics

Laryngeal Stats Doughnut

  • 2,360 people in the UK were diagnosed with laryngeal cancer in 2011.
  • There were 784 deaths from laryngeal cancer in the UK in 2012.
  • 62% of adult male laryngeal cancer patients diagnosed in 2010-2011 in England and Wales are predicted to survive ten or more years.

 

Stats, info and publications

The latest statistics available for laryngeal cancer in the UK are; incidence 2011, mortality 2012 and survival 2010-2011. Find out why these are the latest statistics available

The ICD code for laryngeal cancer is ICD-10 C32.

Survival statistics give an overall picture of survival and (unless otherwise stated) include all adults (15-99) diagnosed, at all ages, stages and co-morbidities. The survival time experienced by an individual patient may be much higher or lower, depending on specific patient and tumour characteristics. If you are a patient, please see our CancerHelp UK pages.

Due to the small numbers of women diagnosed with laryngeal cancer each year, survival data is not routinely available for female laryngeal cancer and is therefore not shown. Survival for males and females combined is available by stage at diagnosis.

Survival by stage is not yet routinely available for the UK due to inconsistencies in the collecting and recording of staging data in the past. Survival by stage is available for the former Anglia Cancer Network in the east of England, however. The former Anglia Cancer Network covers around 5% of the population of England and may not be representative of the country as a whole due to differences in underlying demographic factors (such as age, deprivation or ethnicity), as well as variation in local healthcare provision standards and policies.

Risk factor evidence is for laryngeal cancer unless otherwise specified. Meta-analyses and systematic reviews are cited where available, as they provide the best overview of all available research and most take study quality into account. Individual case-control and cohort studies are reported where such aggregated data are lacking.

Specific questions and answers about some of Cancer Research UK's statistics and 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.
