The latest report from the National Cancer Registry highlights a continued increase in cancer survival rates

While the latest report from the National Cancer Registry of Ireland (NCRI) highlights continual improvements in treatment and survival of many cancers, less favourable findings included on-going increases in lung cancer incidence and mortality among Irish women, with lung cancer death rates for Irish females 34% higher than the EU average.  Other less favourable findings include high mortality from pancreatic cancer (the fifth most common cause of cancer death in Ireland), and low treatment rates for elderly patients.  The report summarizes incidence, mortality, survival and treatment for cancer in Ireland during 1994-2012, focusing particularly on 2010-2012.
