Global cancer statistics 2018: GLOBOCAN estimates of incidence and mortality worldwide for 36 cancers in 185 countries
This article provides a status report on the global burden of cancer worldwide using the GLOBOCAN 2018 estimates of cancer incidence and mortality produced by the International Agency for Research onExpand
Global cancer statistics, 2012
A substantial portion of cancer cases and deaths could be prevented by broadly applying effective prevention measures, such as tobacco control, vaccination, and the use of early detection tests. Expand
Global Cancer Incidence and Mortality Rates and Trends—An Update
Applied cancer control measures are needed to reduce rates in HICs and arrest the growing burden in LMICs, as well as for lung, colorectal, breast, and prostate cancer, although some low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) now count among those with the highest rates. Expand
Ovarian cancer statistics, 2018
Progress in reducing ovarian cancer incidence and mortality can be accelerated by reducing racial disparities and furthering knowledge of etiology and tumorigenesis to facilitate strategies for prevention and early detection. Expand
Lung Cancer Statistics.
Lung cancer mortality rates in the United States are highest among males, blacks, people of lower socioeconomic status, and in the mid-South (e.g., Kentucky, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Tennessee). Expand
Cancer Facts & Figures for Hispanics/Latinos 2012-2014
This publication attempts to summarize current scientific information about cancer. Except when specified, it does not represent the official policy of the American Cancer Society.
International trends in head and neck cancer incidence rates: differences by country, sex and anatomic site.
Oropharyngeal cancer rates increased among both men and women in a number of countries where tobacco use has declined, perhaps due to the emerging importance of human papillomavirus infection, whereas they declined in some Asian countries. Expand
Global Cancer in Women: Burden and Trends
The burden of cancer among women could be substantially reduced in both HICs and LMICs through broad and equitable implementation of effective interventions, including tobacco control, HPV and HBV vaccination, and screening (breast, cervix, and colorectum). Expand
Cancer statistics for Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders, 2016: Converging incidence in males and females
The diversity within the AANHPI population is reflected in the disparate cancer risk by subgroup, and the overall incidence rate in Samoan men is more than twice that in Asian Indian/Pakistani men. Expand
