Macmillan reveals cancer survival lottery

A new study of cancer survival figures by Macmillan Cancer Support has found that people now live nearly six times longer after their cancer diagnosis than was the case 40 years ago.

The charity says the figures will help with the question: "How long have I got?" Why do you think some cancer treatments have progressed while others haven't?
