Up to 15,000 people aged over 75 may be dying unnecessarily from cancer each year in the UK, according to research.
The North West Cancer Intelligence Service said their lives would be prolonged if UK cancer survival rates matched the best in Europe and the US.
Researchers said delays in diagnosing cancer in the UK and poorer treatment after diagnosis may be to blame.
The government's national cancer director said urgent action was needed over the study's findings.
"The point is we don't know why this is happening," said Dr Moran. "Elderly cancer survival is an area which has been grossly neglected. It is crying out for research."
Don't know why it is happening huh?
After diagnosis, its cut, burn and poison. You have to tough to survive the treatment.
How many of these deaths come from complications due to low immune system?
