BACKGROUND There are currently two million cancer survivors in the United Kingdom, and in recent years this number has grown by 3% per annum. The aim of this paper is to provide long-term projections of cancer prevalence in the United Kingdom. METHODS National cancer registry data for England were used to estimate cancer prevalence in the United Kingdom in 2009. Using a model of prevalence as a function of incidence, survival and population demographics, projections were made to 2040. Different ...

Cancer survivors are defined as people who are alive following a diagnosis of cancer from some point in their past. In UK, there are approximately 2 million cancer survivors (approximately 1.66 million of these in England), and this number is increasing by 3% per year (Maddams et al, 2009). The size and demographics of the population of cancer survivors has been described, but there is still a need for more detailed analyses of the burden of cancer on the individual and on health-service resourc...

Recent estimates suggest that there are 2 million people in the UK living with or beyond a diagnosis of cancer and there is increasing attention being given to assessing the health and social care needs of this growing population. A simple analytical model has been constructed to estimate future trends in cancer prevalence, using existing prevalence estimates and trends in cancer incidence and survival. Separate estimates are generated for the contribution to future prevalence due to the current...

Abstract Background In the United Kingdom, there are approximately two million cancer survivors (3.2% of the entire population), composed of groups of people in different phases of survivorship and with different health service needs. The aim of this study was to quantify the level of acute health service utilisation by cancer survivors in the UK, according to tumour type, age, sex, time since diagnosis, and time until death. Methods Linked national cancer registry and hospital activity data wer...

BACKGROUND: Identifying and addressing the requirements of cancer survivors is currently a high priority for the NHS, yet little is known about the population of cancer survivors in the United Kingdom. METHODS: Data from cancer registries in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales were analysed to provide limited-duration prevalence estimates for 2004. Log-linear regression models were used to extend these to complete prevalence estimates. Trends in prevalence from 2000 to 2004 were used t...
