The population-based Thames Cancer Registry records cancer cases in the populations of London, Hertfordshire, Essex, Surrey, Sussex, and Kent. The tables in this report are broken down by age, sex, health authority and region, and type of cancer coded in ICD-10. Incidence and prevalence rates, numbers of new registrations, types of treatment, and survival numbers are presented.

The report also includes a section on cancer in the West London Cancer Network from 1991-2002. The 2002 data was estimated based on data from the previous decade.
