A study of differences in cancer survival between the UK and other high-income countries found:
- For lung, breast, bowel and ovarian cancers diagnosed between 1995 and 2007, Australia, Canada, Sweden and Norway had the best survival rates.
- Denmark and the UK had the lowest, despite all the countries having similarly good cancer registration systems and access to health care.
- One year survival for people with lung cancer was 30% in the UK compared with 44% in Sweden.
Researchers surveyed 19,079 men and women aged 50 and older.
