National Cancer Registry Ireland Annual statistical report 2022

One notable milestone we report this year is that, by the end of 2020, for the first time, the number of people living after an invasive cancer diagnosis had exceeded the 200,000 mark to reach 207,000. This is equivalent to 4.2% of the population, or about 1 in 24 persons in Ireland, a >50% increase in numbers of cancer survivors compared with one decade ago. This reflects both an increase in the number of people being diagnosed with cancer every year and ongoing improvements in cancer survival, as also reported here.
