The number of deaths is not in line with the number of cases diagnosed for each cancer types. Data from the Cancer Research UK shows that breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer types with the most diagnosed.

One of the major reasons for its high survival rate is the many research and funding devoted for it, because it is probably the most popular types of cancers.breast cancer
