In 2015, the top three most common tumour sites for females in HAST were Breast, Lung and Colon. These accounted for over 71% of all cases.

The chart above shows that in the North East, the most new cases of cancer are for Breast cancer (females) and Prostate cancer (males).

However, the most common cause of death from cancer for both females and males is Lung cancer.

In 2014-16, the under 75 mortality rate from cancer in Stockton-on-Tees (n=783) was statistically significantly higher than the national average. This has been the case since at least 2001-03.

In 2014-16, the under 75 mortality rate from cancers that were considered preventable in Stockton-on-Tees (n = 464) was statistically significantly higher than the national average. This has been the case since at least 2001-03.

In 2014-16, lung cancer registration rates in Stockton-on-Tees (n= 522) were statistically significantly higher than the national average. This has been the case since at least 2007-09.

Inequalities in mortality

The following information identifies the causes of death that are driving inequalities in life expectancy.

The above chart compares what causes the excess deaths in Stockton-on-Tees when compared with the England average.

It shows that 36.6% (males) and 28.3% (females) of the excess deaths in Stockton-on-Tees are attributed to cancer.

This means that if Stockton-on-Tees has the same mortality rate as the national average, then 85 (males) and 49 (females) cancer deaths (out of a total of 822) would be prevented.

The above chart compares what causes the excess deaths in the most deprived areas of Stockton-on-Tees when compared with the most affluent areas of Stockton-on-Tees.

It shows that 26.9% (males) and 31.8% (females) of the excess deaths in the most deprived areas of Stockton-on-Tees are attributed to cancer.

This means that if the most deprived areas of Stockton-on-Tees has the same mortality rate as the most affluent areas of Stockton-on-Tees, then 130 (males) and 111 (females) deaths (out of a total of 221) would be prevented.

Screening

The chart above shows that in HAST, residents from the most deprived areas are less likely to take up an offer of cancer screening (for all cancer types) than those from the most affluent areas.

The chart also shows that in HAST, uptake rates of screening for Cervical and Breast cancer are higher than Bowel cancer.

More than a quarter of the eligible population do not take up the offer of cancer screening in HAST.
