    I remember graphs that answered question 2 by showing HUGE inequalities between cancer treatments in the US, depending on where you go. The excellence of a few centres pushes the figures up, but without, say, the first half-decile of centres, average survival falls dramatically in the US.

    P.S. Why is Denmark so bad? England/Scotland/Wales are bad mostly because they underspend on staff/equipment and delay diagnosis (some improvements are under way). What about Denmark?

    Hm, well … money definitively plays a role here. And maybe also the way cancer treatment has traditionally been organised.

    But given that Denmark used to have a comprehensive cancer register with an extensive survey of survival rates etc, this is a bit surprising.
