Abstract

Since the fifties cancer registries have provided population-based, comparative survival statistics for cancer patients. EUROCARE (a co-operative, cancer registry-based project) has collected and analysed survival data on patients diagnosed since 1978. Its reports underlined large differences in cancer survival across Europe. The most recent evaluation on cancer survival among patients diagnosed in 2000-2002 (EUROCARE-4 study) showed highest survival rates in the northern European countries and lowest for those in the eastern European countries. Patients in Eastern Europe had the highest improvement in survival for major cancer sites during 1991-2002.
