Ovarian Cancer (C56-C57.4), Number of New Cases, Crude and European Age-Standardised (AS) Incidence Rates per 100,000 Population, UK, 2013
|AS Rate - 95% LCL||22.8||23.0||19.9||17.6||22.7|
|AS Rate - 95% UCL||24.0||27.9||23.4||23.8||23.8|
95% LCL and 95% UCL are the 95% lower and upper
ASR calculated with ESP2013. Not comparable with ASRs calculated with ESP1976.
Ovarian cancer incidence rates throughout the UK vary only moderately between cancer networks, with the highest rates in areas of the Midlands and the South West, and the lowest rates being in areas of Yorkshire and the South East.[5,6]
