Supplementary notes

* Information from the source: "Cancer registrations in England can take up to 5 years after the end of a given calendar year to reach 100% completeness, due to the continuing accrual of late registrations. Therefore, published figures for 2015 are likely to increase in future publications when late registrations are included. The 2015 data has been assessed as 98% complete and there are likely to be late registrations provided after this publication."

Cancer mortality to incidence ratios are calculated by dividing the number of deaths by the number of incidences for each given site, sex and region. If the rate exceeds 1, this means that more people died in that period than there were new registrations. The people who died, however, may have been diagnosed in a previous period. In other words, the deaths are not necessarily directly linked to the incidents.

Breast cancer medical term = malignant neoplasm of breast.

**There were less than 20 cases of male malignant neoplasm of the breast in the North East region and therefore the data may have low reliability.
