The fight against cancer has reached a "tipping point" with more than half of sufferers now surviving at least 10 years, a major new study shows.
Researchers looking at data from over 7 million patients found a huge increase in survival rates from the 1970s, when just a quarter of patients lived as long as ten years after diagnosis.
The chief executive of Cancer Research UK, Dr Harpal Kumar, added that for many patients the survival time would be "very much longer" than 10 years.
