More than 330,000 people were found to have the disease where as ten years ago 283,000 were diagnosed, the health charity said.
The charity said that the rates of diagnosis have soared by more than a third since the mid 1970s.
Britain's ageing population was one of the reasons behind the rise in cancer rates, according to the charity.
