- The number who get cancer who don't die from the disease has increased by 67% over the past 20 years, in 1992, around one in five people diagnosed with cancer died from another cause, and by 2010, this had risen to more than one in three
The charity also found growing evidence that many cancer patients do not return to full health after treatments.
