Letter from Stephen Penneck, dated July 2010:
As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking how many people aged between 50 and 59 years were diagnosed with bowel cancer in each year since 2001.
The latest available figures for newly diagnosed cases of bowel cancer (incidence) are for the year 2007. Please note that these numbers may not be the same as the number of people diagnosed with cancer, because one person may be diagnosed with more than one cancer.
Table 1 provides the number of newly diagnosed cases of bowel cancer in England for persons aged between 50 and 59 years, in each year from 2001 to 2007.
|Table 1. Registrations of newly diagnosed cases of bowel cancer( 1) , persons aged between 50 and 59 years, England( 2) , 2001 to 2007( 3)|
|(1) Bowel cancer is another name for colorectal cancer. Both are coded as C18-C20 in the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10). |
(2) Based on boundaries as of 2010.
(3) Newly diagnosed cases registered in each calendar year.
