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 cancer incidence, mortality, and survival. Incidence data were collected by the National Cancer Institute (Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results [SEER] Program), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (National Program of Cancer Registries), and the North American Association of Central Cancer… 
Cancer statistics, 2019
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.

Cancer statistics, 2020
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.
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 better
Colorectal Cancer Incidence Patterns in the United States, 1974–2013
Age-specific CRC risk has escalated back to the level of those born circa 1890 for contemporary birth cohorts, underscoring the need for increased awareness among clinicians and the general public, as well as etiologic research to elucidate causes for the trend.
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.
Estimating the annual frequency of synchronous brain metastasis in the United States 2010–2013: a population-based study
The results reflect the high proportion of patients who are diagnosed with lung cancer at late stages and present with SBM, in contrast to other common cancers in the US where SBM is less common.

The incidence rate of breast cancer in the US is clearly on rise, which is indicative of aggressive screenings and detections, and more efforts are needed to improve the prognosis of patients diagnosed at a later stage.
Correlation Among Cancer Incidence and Mortality Rates and Internet Searches in the United States
Analysis of Google search volume index data and US cancer incidences and mortalities of 8 of the most incident cancers in the United States in 2009 to 2013, at the state level, per the National Program of Cancer Registries found population-level internet search behavior may be a valuable real-time tool to estimate cancer incidence and mortality rates.
Second primary lung cancer in United States Cancer Survivors, 1992–2008
The incidence of second primary lung cancers (SPLC) in survivors of certain primary cancers greatly exceeds the rate observed in the control arm of the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), a randomized lung cancer screening trial.


Breast cancer statistics, 2011
An overview of female breast cancer statistics in the United States, including trends in incidence, mortality, survival, and screening is provided, with screening rates continue to be lower in poor women compared with non‐poor women, despite much progress in increasing mammography utilization.
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.
Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, 1975–2005, Featuring Trends in Lung Cancer, Tobacco Use, and Tobacco Control
Although the decrease in overall cancer incidence and death rates is encouraging, large state and regional differences in lung cancer trends among women underscore the need to maintain and strengthen many state tobacco control programs.
Breast cancer statistics
Breast cancer rates vary largely by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status (SES), and geographic region, and death rates are higher in African American women than in whites, despite their lower incidence rates.
Trends in Colorectal Cancer Incidence Rates in the United States by Tumor Location and Stage, 1992–2008
Large declines in the incidence of right-sided colon tumors among individuals 50 years and older began around 2000, and increased colonoscopy utilization during the past decade may have contributed to a reduction in risk for cancers in both the right and left colorectum in the United States.
Disparities by Race, Age, and Sex in the Improvement of Survival for Major Cancers: Results From the National Cancer Institute Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program in the United States, 1990 to 2010.
To quantify the degree of survival improvement over time by age, race, and sex in the United States, longitudinal analyses of cancer follow-up data from 1990 to 2010 found younger patients experienced greater benefit from recent oncology advances than elderly patients.
Are increasing 5-year survival rates evidence of success against cancer?
Although 5-year survival is a valid measure for comparing cancer therapies in a randomized trial, the analysis shows that changes in 5- year survival over time bear little relationship to changes in cancer mortality and appear primarily related to changing patterns of diagnosis.
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.
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.
The role of increasing detection in the rising incidence of prostate cancer.
The recent dramatic epidemic of prostate cancer is likely the result of the increasing detection of tumors resulting from increased PSA screening, and changes in the intensity of medical surveillance is the most plausible explanation for this trend.
