“More middle-aged people are getting cancer but fewer of them are dying from it thanks to improved detection and better treatment, research has found.

The findings are ‘positive and reassuring’ for those aged 35 to 69, according to cancer experts quoted in the British Medical Journal, which published the paper.

Cases of cancer in that age group rose between 1993 and 2018, according to Cancer Research UK (CRUK), which played a leading role in the study. However, the number of men and women dying from the disease fell by 37% and 33% respectively over the same 25 years.”
