Each year, the American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates the number of new cancer cases and deaths expected in the United States in the current year and compiles the most recent data on cancer incidence, mortality, and survival based on incidence data from the National Cancer Institute, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries and mortality data from the National Center for Health Statistics. [] Key Method This report considers incidence data…
A Midpoint Assessment of the American Cancer Society Challenge Goal to Decrease Cancer Incidence by 25% Between 1992 and 2015
Overall cancer incidence rates have declined by about 0.6% per year over the first half of the ACS challenge period, and the greatest overall declines were observed among men and among those aged 65 years and older.
The decrease in breast-cancer incidence in 2003 in the United States.
An initial analysis of data from the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registries shows that the age-adjusted incidence rate of breast cancer in women in
Use of a Population-Based Cancer Registry to Calculate Twenty-Year Trends in Cancer Incidence and Mortality in Fukui Prefecture
Cancer mortality has been declining in recent years, and the reduction in mortality from stomach cancer has significantly affected the trends in Fukui, where urgent cancer control planning is necessary.
Trends in cancer incidence and mortality in Osaka, Japan: Evaluation of cancer control activities
The decreased overall cancer mortality in Osaka during the study period was mainly due to natural decreases in the incidence of stomach and liver cancer, which were attributable to the decrease in risk factors.
Analysis of oral cancer epidemiology in the US reveals state-specific trends: implications for oral cancer prevention
BackgroundDownward trends have been observed in oral cancer incidence and mortality in the US over the past 30 years; however, these declines are not uniform within this population. Several studies
Society Guidelines and Cancer Screening Issues Cancer Screening in the United States, 2008: A Review of Current American Cancer
The current ACS guidelines are summarized, an update of the most recent data pertaining to participation rates in cancer screening from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System and the National Health Interview Survey are provided, and some issues related to access to care are addressed.

    CA: a cancer journal for clinicians
  • 2007
The American Cancer Society reported the second consecutive annual decline in US cancer deaths since recordkeeping began in 1930 in January, and the numbers of death from cancer in many lowand middle-income countries have been rising rapidly.
Breast Cancer in the Middle Eastern Population of California, 1988–2004
Lower rates for early stage and higher rates for late stage diagnoses in this ethnic population suggest lack of optimal access to preventive healthcare, and relative survival in the two groups is negatively associated with stage at diagnosis and is slightly higher in ME women, probably due to large numbers of lost to follow‐up in Me women suggesting the presence of salmon bias.
Cancer incidence among patients of the U.S. Veterans Affairs Health Care System.
OBJECTIVE Approximately 40,000 incident cancer cases are reported in the Veterans Affairs Central Cancer Registry (VACCR) annually (approximately 3% of U.S. cancer cases). Our objective was to
Cancer Incidence Among Patients of the U.S. Veterans Affairs Health Care System: 2010 Update.
Although the composition of the VA population is shifting and includes a larger number of women, registry data indicate that incident cancers in VA in 2010 were most similar to those observed among U.S. men.


Annual report to the nation on the status of cancer, 1975-2002, featuring population-based trends in cancer treatment.
Cancer death rates for all cancer sites combined and for many common cancers have declined at the same time as the dissemination of guideline-based treatment into the community has increased, although this progress is not shared equally across all racial and ethnic populations.
Trends in Breast Cancer by Race and Ethnicity
Trends in incidence, mortality, and survival rates of female breast cancer in the United States by race and ethnicity are described and continued efforts are needed to increase the availability of high‐quality mammography and treatment to all segments of the population.
Impact of reporting delay and reporting error on cancer incidence rates and trends.
Investigating the impact of reporting delay and reporting error on incidence rates and trends for cancers of the female breast, colorectal, lung/bronchus, prostate, and melanoma found reporting-adjusted cancer incidence rates are valuable in precisely determining current cancer incidence levels and trends and in monitoring the timeliness of data collection.
A New Method of Estimating United States and State‐level Cancer Incidence Counts for the Current Calendar Year
A new method is presented that uses statistical models of cancer incidence that incorporate potential predictors of spatial and temporal variation of cancer occurrence and that account for delay in case reporting and then projects these estimated numbers of cases ahead 4 years using a piecewise linear (joinpoint) regression method.
A New Method of Predicting US and State‐Level Cancer Mortality Counts for the Current Calendar Year
The improved accuracy of the new method was particularly evident for prostate cancer, for which mortality rates changed dramatically in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Cancer Disparities by Race/Ethnicity and Socioeconomic Status
Differences in cancer incidence, mortality, and survival in relation to race/ethnicity, and census data on poverty in the county or census tract of residence are highlighted.
Cancer survival among US whites and minorities: a SEER (Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results) Program population-based study.
This study describes racial or ethnic patterns of cancer-specific survival and relative risks of cancer death for all cancers combined and for cancers of the colon and rectum, lung and bronchus, prostate, and female breast for the 6 major USracial or ethnic groups.
Survival of blacks and whites after a cancer diagnosis.
Only modest cancer-specific survival differences are evident for blacks and whites treated comparably for similar-stage cancer, suggesting differences in cancer biology between racial groups are unlikely to be responsible for a substantial portion of the survival discrepancy.
Cancer statistics for african americans
Evidence is now accumulating that the causes of increased cancer morbidity and mortality in African Americans are related more to poverty and lack of education and access to care than to any inherent racial characteristics.
