Description:
Cancer is a major healthcare challenge. Each year in Ireland, approximately 19,000 people are diagnosed with malignant cancer. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in Ireland after diseases of the circulatory system (National Cancer Registry in Ireland; NCRI, 2014a). Over 8,000 deaths from cancer are reported in Ireland every year. Cancer incidence data from the NCRI and population projections from the Central Statistics Office (CSO) have been combined by the NCRI to estimate the number of new cancer cases expected in five year bands from 2015 to 2040. The total number of new invasive cancer cases (including non-melanoma skin cancer) is projected to increase by 84% for females and 107% for males between 2010 and 2040, based only on changes in population size and age distribution (demography). If trends in incidence since 1994 are also taken into account, the number of cases is expected to increase by between 86% and 125% for females (depending on the method of projection used) and by between 126% and 133% for males (NCRI, 2014b).
