    ..Socioeconomic differences in cancer patient survival are known to exist for women diagnosed with breast cancer. Standard metrics tend not to place great emphasis on evaluating the actual impact of these differences...

    M J Rutherford
    Department of Health Sciences, University of Leicester, Leicester, United Kingdom
    Int J Cancer 133:2192-200. 2013
    ..The findings suggest that policies aimed at reducing inequalities in stage at diagnosis between women with breast cancer are important to reduce inequalities in breast cancer survival. ..
  3. pmc A comprehensive assessment of the impact of errors in the cancer registration process on 1- and 5-year relative survival estimates
    M J Rutherford
    University of Leicester, Department of Health Sciences, Leicester LE1 7RH, UK
    Br J Cancer 108:691-8. 2013

    M J Rutherford
    Department of Health Sciences, University of Leicester, Leicester LE1 7RH, UK
    Br J Cancer 112:S116-23. 2015
    ..Although inequalities in cancer survival are thought to reflect inequalities in stage at diagnosis, little evidence exists about the size of potential survival gains from eliminating inequalities in stage at diagnosis...

    M J Rutherford
    Department of Health Sciences, University of Leicester, Leicester LE1 7RH UK
    Br J Cancer 112:S124-8. 2015
    ..Older women with breast cancer have poorer relative survival outcomes, but whether achieving earlier stage at diagnosis would translate to substantial reductions in mortality is uncertain...

    Br J Cancer 106:1854-9. 2012
    ..It is argued, as most lung cancer patients are smokers and therefore carry a higher risk of smoking-related mortalities, that they are not comparable to a population where the majority are likely to be non-smokers...
