Cancer cases in Ireland could double by 2045, according to the latest National Cancer Registry report released today.

For all cancers combined, excluding non-melanoma skin cancer, it's predicted there'll be a 111% increase for men and an 80% rise for women between 2015 and 2045, or a doubling of numbers overall to 43,000.

However, the overall increase could be only a 50% rise in both men and women if recent trends, including drops in some cancers continue.

Hodgkin lymphoma has the smallest projected increases to 2045 for both men and women while bladder cancer has the largest expected rise

Reacting to the report, the Irish Cancer Society's Dr. Robert O'Connor is concerned by the possible doubling of cancer cases: 'We're very worried about the projection for this increase in numbers, our cancer services are already struggling under burden'.
