Description:

This is the 20th annual statistical report of the National Cancer Registry. The report summarises cancer incidence in Ireland for the period 1994 to 2013, with particular emphasis on the most recent three years for which reliable data are available (2011-2013) , longer-term trends in incidence, and prevalence (the numbers of cancer patients still alive). Brief summaries of cancer mortality (2011-2012 data) and survival are also included. Mortality: deaths from cancer: Lung cancer was the leading cause of cancer death in both sexes, comprising 18% of cancer deaths in women and 23% of cancer deaths in men during the period 2011-2012. Deaths from lung, colorectal, breast and prostate cancers combined made up almost half of all deaths from cancer during this period.
