Thankfully over half the people diagnosed with cancer in England and Wales survive their disease for 10 years or more and with advances in medicine most cancers are now treatable.
Early diagnosis is vital in increasing the chances of making a full recovery. For example statistics show that 93% of bowel cancer patients diagnosed with the earliest stage of the disease survive at least 5 years compared with less than 7% of those diagnosed with the most advanced stage. The same pattern is true across other cancers such as lung and breast.
