Summary

This publication is an update to the Cancer patient survival covering the period 1994 to 2007  publication released by the Ministry of Health in 2010.  It is not a stand alone document.

This document updates only the ‘change over time’ information detailed in the main publication, by showing updated information for five-year survival of patients alive and diagnosed with cancer during the five periods covered (1998–1999, 2000–2001, 2002–2003, 2004–2005 and 2006–2007). New information showing survival for the 2008–2009 period has also been included.

Not all the cancer sites detailed in the main publication have been covered in this update. This document shows updated information for the following sites:

  • all adult cancers
  • colorectum and anus
  • trachea, bronchus and lung
  • melanoma of the skin
  • female breast cancer
  • prostate
  • Hodgkin lymphoma
  • non-Hodgkin lymphoma
