LONDON, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- Although there is a general increasing trend in global cancer survival, wide and persistent disparities still exist between countries, according to a study released Wednesday by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
Researchers analyzed individual patient records from 322 cancer registries in 71 countries and territories to compare five-year survival from diagnosis for more than 37.5 million adults and children with one of 18 common cancers. These cancers represent three-quarters of all cancers diagnosed worldwide every year between 2000 and 2014.
In Britain, overall cancer survival is improving, with several cancers showing substantial increases in five-year survival Authentic St. Louis Blues Jersey , including breast, prostate, rectum and colon, the figures showed.
