Professor Lawrence Young on the King's cancer diagnosis

Professor Lawrence Young, Professor of Molecular Oncology, University of Warwick, said:

“A cancer diagnosis is always worrying. Each year more than a third of all cancer cases in the UK are diagnosed in people aged 75 and over. The good news is that with improved diagnostic tests and treatments cancer survival has doubled over the last 50 years in the UK. Diagnosing cancer early provides the best chance of successful treatment and cure. The King’s openness about his cancer diagnosis raises the profile of this disease and emphasises the importance of early diagnosis.”
