The figure below shows the survival rate for men diagnosed with the major cancers that affect men. The Horizontal axis shows the various cancers and the vertical axis shows the survival rate in %. Different cancers would obviously have different survival rates due to the various severity of the conditions and how difficult it can be treated.
There are Two graphs the first is for the ten year period of 1991 to 2001. In a later post i will provide comparisons to see if there are any improvements or not.
I generated the graph showing the highest survival rate to the lowest survival rate. In the graphs below we can see that in both decades testicular cancer has the highest survival rate. In both decades, testicular cancer has the highest survival rate with 93.2% surviving for 10 years in the decade of 1991 to 2001 and 95.3% in the decade of 2001 to 2001.
The lowest survival for pancreatic cancer for both periods is 2.1, which is around the same for women
In a later post, i will give reasons behind the vast differences in the survival rates behind these cancer, and recommend on how to improve them.
