According to the figures, there has been a 20 per cent increase in the deaths taking place due to womb cancer in about 10 years.
Experts have stated that the main reason for this rise is obesity and this increases the risk of the disease by about 50 per cent.
Since the 1990s, there has been a 43 per cent rise in incidence of womb cancer from 13.7 to 19.6 per 100,000 women in the UK.
Cancer Research UK states that for about 25 years before this, the chances of getting this disease were constant and there was a decrease in the rate of deaths happening due to this but since the late 1990s, the death rate has risen from 3.1 to 3.7 per 100,000 in the UK.
The only good part is that there is an improvement in the survival rate of women and this rate is more than what it was in 1971 to 1975.
Professor Jonathan Ledermann, Cancer Research UK's gynaecological cancer expert, said, “It's hugely troubling that more women are dying from womb cancer but we shouldn't let this cloud the fact that the chances of surviving the disease are still better than ever.”
