Significant Increase in Incidence Rates for all Cancers in UK

Rise of 23% in males and 43% in females

The European age-standardised (AS) incidence rates for all cancers in Great Britain increased by 23% in males during the period 1975-1977 to 2009-2011 (from 351.8 per 100,000 to 431.6 per 100,000) and by 43% in females (from 263.3 per 100,000 to 377.1 per 100,000), with almost this entire rise occurring before the late 1990s. Over the last ten years in Great Britain (between 2000-2002 and 2009-2011), the AS incidence rates increased by just 3% in males and 7% in females.
