Cases of Cancer in Elderly to Surge by 2035, Report Says

The number of elderly people in the UK diagnosed each year with cancer is set to rise by 80% in less than 20 years, a report predicts. Cancer Research UK estimates that by 2035 about 234,000 over-75s will get cancer each year - up from 130,000 now. The charity also said the elderly were more likely to have multiple health conditions, leading to later diagnoses.
