One-year and five-year net survival from cancers of the oesophagus, stomach, colon, lung and breast (women) improved by 2 to 15% for adults in England diagnosed in 2010 compared to those diagnosed in 1997.
There were disparities in net survival between the 28 Cancer Networks of England, with a difference of over 10% between the networks with the highest and lowest one-year net survival for cancers of the oesophagus, stomach, and lung (women) in 2010.
Regional disparities were relatively stable over the period 1997–2010, despite the large overall improvements in survival.
