The latest worldwide cancer incidence statistics for the UK for Health Professionals. See data for cancer type, trends over time, prevalence and. Basic information about cancer statistics in the U.S. and how they are used to understand the impact of cancer on society and to develop.
The drop in cancer mortality is mostly due to steady reductions in smoking and advances in early detection and treatment. But not all populations are benefitting. Although the racial gap in cancer deaths is slowly narrowing, socioeconomic inequalities are widening. A Cancer Journal for Clinicians , estimates the numbers of new cancer cases and deaths expected in the US this year.
The estimates are some of the most widely quoted cancer statistics in the world. The information is also released in a companion report, Cancer Facts and Figures , available on the interactive website, the Cancer Statistics Center. A total of 1,, new cancer cases and , deaths from cancer are expected to occur in the US in The cancer death rate — declined by 1.
The most common cancers diagnosed in men are prostate , lung , and colorectal cancers. For women, the 3 most common cancers are breast , lung, and colorectal. These cancers also account for the greatest numbers of cancer deaths.
One-quarter of all cancer deaths are due to lung cancer. The rates of new cancer cases and cancer deaths vary quite a bit among racial and ethnic groups, with rates generally highest among African Americans and lowest for Asian Americans. The progress is due to the steep drop in smoking rates among black teens from the late s through the early s. Racial and ethnic differences in cancer burden reflect several factors related to socioeconomic status.
People living in the poorest counties in the US are more likely to smoke and be obese. Poverty is also associated with lower rates of routine cancer screening, later stage at diagnosis, and a lower likelihood of getting the best treatment. Cancer is the second most common cause of death among children ages 1 to 14 years in the US, after accidents. In , an estimated 11, children in this age group will be diagnosed with cancer and 1, will die from it. Cancer incidence rates increased in children and adolescents by 0.
However, death rates have declined continuously. This age group represents the fastest-growing population group in the US. Cancer risk increases with age, and the rapidly growing older population will increase demand for cancer care.
Diagnosis and treatment of cancer at older ages are often complicated by other medical conditions. The special section provides information about cancer in the oldest old in the US, including incidence and mortality rates and trends, survival, treatment, and the unique challenges affecting these patients.
