The picture for cancer in Wales

Statement from Dr Tom Crosby, Medical Director Wales Cancer Network

“International studies consistently show Wales toward the bottom of international comparators for cancer survival and highlight late stage at diagnosis as a major causative factor. The significantly higher number of patients diagnosed in an emergency setting and the proportion of cancers diagnosed at later stages suggests Wales needs to better identify cancers at earlier stages. Detecting cancer early makes it more likely that treatment can be curative, less intensive and less expensive”. (1)
