Figures provided by Cancer Research UK shows the highest number of people affected by breast cancer live in the south west of England.

In this area, 178 people per every 100,000 suffer, or suffered with prostate cancer in the years between 2012 and 2014.

This area includes the cities and towns of Bristol, Plymouth, Bournemouth and Poole, Swindon, Gloucester and Bath.

The annual average number of people affected every year by the disease in the region is 5,210.

However, the second highest affected area is the south east of England, with 176.5 people per every 100,000 affected by the disease.

Over 7,000 people - 7,850 - were affected on average every year between 2012 and 2014.

Yorkshire and the Humber has the fewest affected by the breast cancer, with 161.6 people per every 100,000 and an average of 4,235 people affected every year.

London also has a relatively low number of people affected by the disease, with 162.7 people in every 100,000 being affected.

The rates could signify differences in NHS care across the country, ageing populations - with many people retiring to the south coast and awareness of symptoms.

Breast cancer map of England: Cancer Research UK has revealed the areas with the highest prevalence

Cancer Research UK reports that there were 55,222 cases of invasive breast cancer in 2014 in the UK, with 11,433 deaths from the disease in the same year. 

Almost half - 48 per cent - of breast cancer cases in the UK each year are diagnosed in people aged 65 and over (2012-2014).

Since the late 1970s, breast cancer incidence rates have increased by more than half - 54 per cent - in Great Britain, though this includes an increase in females 64 per cent and stable rates in males.

Figures revealed by the ONS show the north east has the highest overall cancer rates, closely followed by the north west and Yorkshire and the Humber.
