Breast cancer statistics _ cancer research uk

• Breast cancer survival in England is highest for women diagnosed aged 60-69, probably because of screening, and less favourable tumour characteristics in younger women (2009-2013).

• Around 9 in 10 women in England diagnosed with breast cancer between ages 40-69 survive their disease for five years or more, compared with 7 in 10 women diagnosed aged 80 and over (2009-2013).

• When diagnosed at its earliest stage, around all women with breast cancer will survive their disease for five years or more, compared with 3 in 20 women when the disease diagnosed at the latest stage.

The latest statistics available for breast cancer in the UK are; incidence 2014, mortality 2014, survival 2010-2011 (all ages combined) and 2009-2013 (by age) and screening in the UK is 2009-2010 and England is 2010-2011.


Endometrial biopsy procedure Data for in situ breast carcinoma are; incidence 2013, mortality and survival data are not available.

The ICD code for breast cancer is ICD-10 C50. Endometrial biopsy side effects The ICD code for in situ breast carcinoma (non-invasive tumours of the breast) is ICD-10 D05, of which there are two main types: lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS; ICD-10 D05.0) and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS; ICD-10 D05.1).

European Age-Standardised Rates were calculated using the 2013 European Standard Population (ESP). Liver biopsy recovery time Previous content used the 1976 European Standard Population. Abnormal endometrial biopsy results ASRs calculated with ESP2013 are not comparable with ASRs calculated with ESP1976.

Lifetime risk estimates were calculated using incidence, mortality, population and all-cause mortality data for 2012 for females and 2010-2012 for males due to the small number of cases.

Due to the small numbers of men diagnosed with breast cancer each year, most of the information in these pages refers to females only but there are some statistics for breast cancer in males .

Survival statistics give an overall picture of survival and (unless otherwise stated) include all adults (15-99) diagnosed, at all ages, stages and co-morbidities . Endometrial biopsy recovery The survival time experienced by an individual patient may be much higher or lower, depending on specific patient and tumour characteristics.

Meta-analyses and systematic reviews are cited where available, as they provide the best overview of all available research and most take study quality into account. Endometrial biopsy video Individual case-control and cohort studies are reported where such aggregated data are lacking. Pain after endometrial biopsy The evidence on this page is for female breast cancer unless otherwise specified.

Routes to diagnosis statistics were calculated from cases of cancer registered in England which were diagnosed in 2012-2013. Staging proportions only include patients with a known stage (cases with an unknown stage at diagnosis are not included in the denominator).

Cancer waiting times statistics are for patients who entered the health care system within financial year 2014-15. Cervical biopsy recovery Breast cancer is part of the group ‘Breast cancer’ for cancer waiting times data. Endometrial biopsy complications Codes vary per country but broadly include: invasive breast cancer and breast in situ.

Patient Experience data is for adult patients in England with a primary diagnosis of cancer, who were in active treatment between September and November 2013 and who completed a survey in 2014.

The breast screening programmes’ definition of breast cancer includes ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) tumours as well as invasive cancer and so the ICD codes for statistics on the screening statistics pages are mostly ICD-10 C50 and D05.1, which is different to the other breast statistics on this site.

Deprivation gradient statistics were calculated using incidence data for three time periods: 1996-2000, 2001-2005 and 2006-2010 and for mortality for two time periods: 2002-2006 and 2007-2011. Hysteroscopy endometrial biopsy The 1997-2001 mortality data were only used for the all cancers combined group as this time period includes the change in coding from ICD-9 to ICD-10. Breast biopsy recovery time The deprivation quintiles were calculated using the Income domain scores from the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) from the following years: 2004, 2007 and 2010.
