Outline of Uterine Cancer in the United Kingdom: Incidence, Mortality and Survival

This report presents the latest time trends, trends by age, and regional variations in incidence, mortality and survival for malignant uterine tumours in the UK. There is also a separate section on these cases stratified according to their main morphological groups. This report has been produced by Public Health England’s Knowledge and Intelligence Team (East Midlands) (formerly part of Trent Cancer Registry), the NCIN’s lead for gynaecological cancers, on behalf of the NCIN Gynaecological Site Specific Clinical Reference Group (SSCRG). These data should be of interest to all those involved in the commissioning and delivery of services to prevent, diagnose, and treat uterine cancer.

NHS treated cancer patients receiving major surgical resections (March 2011)

This initial report on major surgical resections in England presents the percentage of NHS treated cancer patients who received a major resection as part of their treatment. The report contains results for thirteen cancer sites, including cervix, ovary and uterus, and covers patients diagnosed during 2004-2006 who were followed up to 2007. Percentages are presented by sex, age, deprivation quintile and cancer network, with funnel plots depicting both percentages and indirectly age-standardised ratios by cancer network. Cancer networks have been assigned by the residence of patients at time of diagnosis. These data provide a basis to instigate further exploration of major surgical resections for cancer patients and to encourage improved recording and sharing of data to allow further analyses to be produced.
