'High' survival for many cancers diagnosed at stages 1-3

'High' survival for many cancers diagnosed at stages 1-3 Adults diagnosed with stage-1 skin, prostate or breast cancer have the same chance of still being alive a year later as the general population, data from the Office for National Statistics and Public Health England suggests.

For many cancers, one-year survival rates are high if they are diagnosed in stages 1-3, but lower in stage 4.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest rates of survival, for men and women.

The estimates are based on cancer diagnoses in England from 2012-16. BBC News
