Neuch√Ętel, 14.10.2021 - The increasing number of older people has led to rising numbers of cancer patients and of deaths caused by cancer, writes the Swiss Federal Council.

At the same time, the overall incidence rate for cancer has decreased for men and has remained unchanged for women. The risk of dying from cancer has decreased in both men and women.

These are some of the findings from the third Swiss Cancer Report 2021, which the Federal Statistical Office (FSO), the National Agency for Cancer Registration (NACR) and the Childhood Cancer Registry (NCCR) have jointly compiled. The report contains the latest available data on cancer in Switzerland for the period 2013-2017. .
