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.

Breast Cancer Leads in Cases

Breast cancer has the most number of diagnosed cases, but it only ranks third when it comes to the most deaths. It means, this type of cancer has a relatively high survival rate.
