We can now find out how many people have survived or died from cancer in Dorset.
A new website, which can be searched by post-code and contains a range of information including screening and early diagnosis statistics, has been setup by Cancer Research UK.
We've tried it out using a Dorchester postcode - and here's what it's come up with.
When it comes to early diagnoses of cancer over 96% of patients in Dorset see a specialist within 2 weeks - which is higher than the national average.
The number of people who get cancer here is higher than the rest of England - with rates of prostate cancer also higher.
But less of us get lung cancer and if we do we're more likely to survive it.
