 Reduction in Cancer Deaths by 2030

Improved diagnosis and treatment will positively influence cancer survival outcomes as predicted by experts. According to them, cancer rates in the UK will reduce by nearly 17% by the year 2030.

There will be a 28% reduction in death rates for breast cancer, 23% for bowel cancer and 16% for prostate cancer.

Professor Peter Sasieni, Cancer Research UK epidemiologist at Queen Mary, University of London, said: "Our latest estimations show that for many cancers, adjusting for age, death rates are set to fall dramatically in the coming decades. And what's really encouraging is that the biggest cancer killers, lung, breast, bowel, and prostate, are part of this falling trend."
