Each year the American Cancer Society compiles estimates of the number of new cancer cases and deaths expected in the US in the current year and the most recent data on cancer incidence, mortality, and survival. An estimated 1,268,000 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the year 2001 and an estimated 553,400 Americans will die from cancer. Overall cancer incidence and death rates have continued to decrease in men and women since the early 1990s, and the decline in overall cancer mortality…

Overall data from the National Cancer Institute Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Cancer Statistics Review are general population-based, are profoundly multifactorial, and do not provide direct evidence of correlation with possible clinical causes.

Annual report to the nation on the status of cancer (1973 through 1998), featuring cancers with recent increasing trends.

Overall cancer incidence and death rates continued to decline in the United States and future progress will require sustained improvements in cancer prevention, screening, and treatment.

Current Concepts in the Management of Colorectal Cancer

The most plausible explanation for the decrease in incidence in the past two decades has been the effect of appropriate screening for this disease, with colonoscopic removal of precancerous adenomas, and thus prevention of development of colorectal cancer.

Survival among U.S. women with invasive epithelial ovarian cancer.

The declining death rates in women with advanced disease suggest the presence of considerable prognostic heterogeneity among these women, which could reflect differences in quality of care.

The Changing Age Distribution of Prostate Cancer in Canada

The changing nature of prostate cancer as a public health issue has important implications for health care provision, e.g., the increased numbers of younger new patients have different needs from the increasing numbers of elderly long-term patients who now spend less time in hospital.

Prostate cancer screening.

The launching of mass screening programs for the early detection of prostate cancer is premature because of the absence of solid evidence of benefit, and one reasonable approach to screening at the individual level is to involve the patient in decisions about whether or not to perform a PSA test.



Annual report to the nation on the status of cancer, 1973-1996, with a special section on lung cancer and tobacco smoking.

The declines in cancer incidence and death rates, particularly for lung cancer, are encouraging, however, unless recent upward trends in smoking among adolescents can be reversed, the lung cancer rates that are currently declining in the United States may rise again.

An adjustment to the 1997 estimate for new prostate cancer cases

It is now estimated that fewer than 210,000 new cases of prostate cancer may be diagnosed in 1997 than previously estimated.

The annual report to the nation on the status of cancer, 1973–1997, with a special section on colorectal cancer

This annual report to the nation addresses progress in cancer prevention and control in the U.S. with a special section on colorectal cancer. This report is the joint effort of the American Cancer
