Description:
An average of approximately 34,300 cancers was registered per year between 2009 and 2011 inclusive, representing an incidence rate overall of 746 cases per 100,000 per year (Table 1.1). Approximately 19% of these were non‐invasive cancers (in‐situ tumours, cancers of uncertain behaviour and benign brain and CNS tumours) and 25% were non‐melanoma skin cancers (NMSC, 8,575 cases per year). Looking at figures for all invasive cancers only, and excluding NMSC, just over 19,200 cases were registered annually, representing 56% of all registered cases and equivalent to an incidence rate of 425 cases per 100,000 per year. This indicates an annual increase of 645 cases or 0.5% increase in incidence rate compared to previously published figures (2008‐2010 averages). Incidence rates for all invasive cancers, excluding NMSC, were 28% higher for men than for women (similar to previously published figures), and cumulative lifetime risk remains approximately 1 in 3 for men and 1 in 4 for women.
