Cancer statistics, 2017
Each year, the American Cancer Society estimates the numbers of new cancer cases and deaths that will occur in the United States in the current year and compiles the most recent data on cancerExpand
Cancer treatment and survivorship statistics, 2016
The number of cancer survivors continues to increase because of both advances in early detection and treatment and the aging and growth of the population. For the public health community to betterExpand
Cancer statistics, 2016
TLDR
Overall cancer incidence trends are stable in women, but declining by 3.1% per year in men, much of which is because of recent rapid declines in prostate cancer diagnoses, and brain cancer has surpassed leukemia as the leading cause of cancer death among children and adolescents. Expand
Colorectal cancer statistics, 2017
TLDR
Overall CRC incidence in individuals ages ≥50 years declined from 2009 to 2013 in every state except Arkansas, with the decrease exceeding 5% annually in 7 states; however, rectal tumor incidence in those ages 50 to 64 years was stable in most states. Expand
Cancer statistics, 2015
TLDR
The overall cancer death rate decreased from 215.1 (per 100,000 population) in 1991 to 168.7 in 2011, a total relative decline of 22%. Expand
Cancer statistics, 2019
TLDR
The overall cancer death rate dropped continuously from 1991 to 2016 by a total of 27%, translating into approximately 2,629,200 fewer cancer deaths than would have been expected if death rates had remained at their peak. Expand
Cancer statistics, 2018
TLDR
The combined cancer death rate dropped continuously from 1991 to 2015 by a total of 26%, translating to approximately 2,378,600 fewer cancer deaths than would have been expected if death rates had remained at their peak. Expand
Cancer treatment and survivorship statistics, 2019
TLDR
Estimating cancer prevalence in the United States using incidence and survival data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results cancer registries; vital statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics; and population projections from the US Census Bureau is presented. Expand
Cancer statistics, 2020
TLDR
Slow momentum for some cancers amenable to early detection is juxtaposed with notable gains for other common cancers, and it is notable that long‐term rapid increases in liver cancer mortality have attenuated in women and stabilized in men. Expand
Colorectal cancer statistics, 2020
TLDR
Progress against CRC can be accelerated by increasing access to guideline‐recommended screening and high‐quality treatment, particularly among Alaska Natives, and elucidating causes for rising incidence in young and middle‐aged adults. Expand
