Cancer risk data visualisation

For around 70 cancers, this data visualisation provides cancer incidence and mortality risk data by age. Help with terms, and information about the data, is available by placing the mouse pointer over the icons found near the top of the page. Additional guidance about the risk adjusted for competing mortality and risk unadjusted for competing mortality is located in cancer data commentary number 1 and the methods section.
