Recent cancer outcomes in the East of England
The relative survival percentage figures given here are the probability of survival of a person with cancer when compared with people of the same age and sex in the whole population of England. Relative survival can be greater than 100%, which means that the particular cancer has good survival and that competing mortality is lower in people with that cancer as compared with the background population.
There may be differences in survival between these data and other published results due to factors such as the timing of the data extract compared with those submitted to other organisations, and the data definitions used by the different organisations. There may also be slight differences in the estimates of relative survival due to different methodologies used and/or different life tables used to compute expected survival in the background population.
