Cancers ‘rising around the world

There will be 18.1 million new cases of cancer and 9.6 million people will die with the disease this year worldwide, a report predicts.

The rise, from 14.1 million cases and 8.2 million deaths in 2012, is partly due to a growing and ageing population.

The figures suggest one in five men and one in six women will develop the disease in their lifetime.

And as countries become wealthier, more people get cancers related to lifestyle rather than those linked to poverty.

The latest report suggests lung cancer, female breast cancer, and bowel cancer are responsible for a third of all cancer cases and deaths worldwide.
