Uterine (womb) cancer is the fourth most common cancer in females in the UK (2013), accounting for 5% of all new cases of cancer in females.[1-4]
In 2013, there were 9,022 new cases of uterine cancer in the UK.[1-4] The
Uterine Cancer (C54-C55), Number of New Cases, Crude and European Age-Standardised (AS) Incidence Rates per 100,000 Population, UK, 2013
|AS Rate - 95% LCL||28.4||30.9||27.0||26.5||28.7|
|AS Rate - 95% UCL||29.7||36.6||31.0||34.0||29.9|
95% LCL and 95% UCL are the 95% lower and upper confidence limits around the
ASR calculated with ESP2013. Not comparable with ASRs calculated with ESP1976.
Uterine cancer incidence rates vary significantly across the former cancer networks throughout the UK with higher than average rates in Wales, Yorkshire, the Midlands and Anglia and lower than average rates in Scotland, the North West, and Southern England.[5,6]
