We are delighted to announce that our new report “Rare and Less Common Cancers: Incidence and Mortality in England, 2010 to 2013” is published today (Monday 8th June 2015) on the first day of the NCIN conference in Belfast. It is a report produced jointly by Cancer52 and the National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) at Public Health England.
The new report gathers for the first time data on nearly 280 cancers and gives incidence and mortality rates on some of the rare and less common cancers for this first time.
The report shows that deaths from rare and less common cancers in England continues to rise and that there were 2,700 more deaths annually in 2013 from rare and less common cancers in England than in 2010.
