Routes to Diagnosis, 2018


Routes to Diagnosis categorises the pathways that lead to a patient’s diagnosis of cancer. These results provide an overview of the results for 2006 to 2018, showing the trends over time for all malignant neoplasms (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer) and a snapshot of results in 2018 for female breast, colorectal, lung and prostate cancers.

Overall, emergency presentations continue to decline gradually, with the proportion of those diagnosed through the Two Week Wait referral route increasing as it has done since 2006.
