About this data
Data is for UK, 2016-2018, ICD-10 C00-C97 Excl. C44.
The ICD codes for all cancers combined are ICD-10 C00-C97 excluding C44 which includes all malignant neoplasms excluding non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC). NMSC is often excluded from cancer incidence statistics because it is extremely common and registration is known to be incomplete.
