Word cloud of NCR publications

The latest report of the National Cancer Registry, published online today (download PDF), summarizes incidence, mortality, survival and treatment for cancer in Ireland during 1994-2012, focusing particularly on 2010-2012. Findings highlighted in the report include ongoing increases in the incidence of many cancers but, in general, improvements in treatment, early detection and survival and corresponding reductions in mortality rates. Less favourable findings include ongoing increases in lung cancer incidence and mortality among Irish women, high mortality from pancreatic cancer (the fifth most common cause of cancer death in Ireland), and low treatment rates for elderly patients.
