These graphs show the percentage of incident cancers diagnosed each year between 2006 and 2015, split in to one of eight Routes to Diagnosis.
The top line graph shows the percentage of cancers diagnosed by Route and year for the selected cancer site. The coloured lines represent a single Route to Diagnosis, the axis along the bottom is year of diagnosis and the axis on the left is the percentage diagnosed for that cancer site, Route and year.
The lower graph shows the same information with the same axis, but as a stacked line graph. Here the coloured areas represent the percentage of cancers diagnosed by that Route and cancer site for each year.
More information on Routes to Diagnosis can be found here.
