The latest analysis of pancreatic cancer survival suggests that:
- According to a recent National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) data briefing, pancreatic cancer one-year survival is improving in each of the countries of Great Britain. There is little difference in one-year survival between the countries in Great Britain.
- A recent paper in the Lancet looking at EUROCARE5 data showed variation between countries in five-year pancreatic cancer survival. Whilst the European mean was 6.9%, figures for the United Kingdom were as follows: England 4.7%, Wales 5.4%, Scotland 3.4%, Northern Ireland 3.0%.
- According to the NCIN UK Cancer e-atlas, the UK one-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer was 18.0%. However, there was regional variation in one-year survival rates across cancer networks in England, ranging from 14.0% to 25.6%.
