Deaths from Cancer Higher in the Netherlands than in Neighboring Countries

An international group of scientists has compared survival figures of cancer in 29 countries. Ten million patients who were diagnosed with cancer between 2000 and 2007 were investigated. In all of the countries, survival has increased. In the Netherlands, survival of some forms of cancer is lower than in many neighboring countries. This is in particular true regarding stomach cancer, kidneys, prostate and lymphatic system. Elsewhere, after five years - ten and sometimes twenty percent more patients survived. These figures have been presented in Lancet. www.volkskrant.nl/vk/nl/2672/Wetenschap-Gezondheid/article/detail/3556726/2013/12/05/Kankersterfte-in-Nederland-veel-hoger-dan-buurlanden.dhtml
