Womb Cancer Deaths Up by 20%

Womb-CancerAs per recent reports, it has been revealed that there has been a dramatic and drastic escalation in the toll of women confirmed positive for carrying womb cancer, thereby signifying the fact that the deaths due to the same reason have spiked up by more than 20% during the decade that just crossed, as suggested by recently released stats.

Obesity, as per researchers, is one of the most influential aspects giving birth to the rapidly spiking up diagnoses of the potentially severe ailment, at least kicking it up to more than double the earlier figures in terms of the threats involved in the ailment.

The frequency of womb cancer has spiked up 43% ever since the mid ‘90s, picking up the pace from 13.7 to 19.6 out of every 100,000 women across the United Kingdom.

Before the present issue, the odds of catching womb cancer had been fairly steady and were not fluctuating a great deal during the gone two and a-half-decade-long history.

In addition, it has been claimed by Cancer Research UK that death rates have been on a gradual way down. However, since the late ‘90s, it has been seen that the death rate has spiked up from 3.1 to 3.7 for every 100,000 people in the United Kingdom.

This clearly implies that in excess of 1,900 women are now falling prey to the disease every year, as compared to just less than 1,500 before this millennium.

Nevertheless, in general, the rates of survival are drastically improving, with more than 77% of women now safeguarding their lives for five years, may be more, when compared to 61% for women who were confirmed for the disease during 1971 and 1975.

In this regard, a gynecological cancer expert at Cancer Research UK, Prof. Jonathan Ledermann, claimed: “It's hugely troubling that more women are dying from womb cancer but we shouldn't let this cloud the fact that the chances of surviving the disease are still better than ever”.
