In this month’s podcast we bring you highlights from the NCIN conference – the UK’s biggest cancer data conference. The statistics have some important stories to tell, including the news that more men die from prostate cancer than with it, contrary to popular opinion.

Plus, new data reveals that older women may be missing out on breast cancer surgery, and we discuss evidence that the more affluent parts of society have a greater chance of surviving cancer.

We also talk to the director of the NCRI – the umbrella organisation for cancer research in the UK – to discover how increased spending in cancer research will benefit patients.

And finally, we take a look at a day in the life of our Cancer Information Nurses, to find out how clear, accessible information can make a big difference to someone’s cancer journey.
