What can survival show?

Survival rates can indicate the potential for improvement in the management of cancer, from early detection through to referral, investigation, treatment and care.

Understanding the variation in survival rates along with other cancer data can facilitate service planning and development, and help target resources.

The chart below shows one-year and five-year survival rates for people diagnosed with different cancer types between 1995 and 2014. All rates are age-standardised, meaning they take in to account age differences in the underlying populations to provide meaningful comparisons.

What is survival?

One-year survival is the percentage of adults (aged 15 to 99 years) with cancer who are alive one year after diagnosis. 

The rate measures the survival of cancer patients after taking into account the background mortality that patients would have experienced if they had not had cancer.
