Each year, the American Cancer Society estimates the numbers of new cancer cases and deaths that will occur in the United States and compiles the most recent data on cancer incidence, mortality, and survival. [] Key Method Incidence data, available through 2015, were collected by the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program; the National Program of Cancer Registries; and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries.

Cancer statistics, 2022

Progress has stagnated for breast and prostate cancers but strengthened for lung cancer, coinciding with changes in medical practice related to cancer screening and/or treatment, and mortality patterns reflect incidence trends.

Cancer Statistics, 2021

Improved treatment accelerated progress against lung cancer and drove a record drop in overall cancer mortality, despite slowing momentum for other common cancers.

Lung Cancer Screening

  • 2021
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.

Breast cancer statistics, 2019

Breast cancer was the leading cause of cancer death in women in four Southern and two Midwestern states among blacks and in Utah among whites during 2016‐2017, and could be accelerated by expanding access to high‐quality prevention, early detection, and treatment services to all women.

Cancer treatment and survivorship statistics, 2019

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.

The burden of cancer in the United States is substantial, with 1 762 450 new cancer cases and 606 880 cancer deaths projected in 2019 (1). The rising cancer incidence reflects the demographic bulge

Projected estimates of cancer in Canada in 2020

Although progress has been made in reducing deaths for most major cancers, there has been limited progress for pancreatic cancer, which is expected to be the third leading cause of cancer death in Canada in 2020.

Estimates of over-time trends in incidence and mortality of prostate cancer from 1990 to 2030

Through projecting and analyzing incidence and mortality rate of prostate cancer, from 1990 to 2030, by different ages, regions and SDI sub-types, this result may reveal the relationship between prostate cancer and financial development.

The American Cancer Society 2035 challenge goal on cancer mortality reduction

The results show that reducing the prevalence of risk factors and achieving optimal adherence to evidence‐based screening guidelines by 2025 could lead to a 33.5% reduction in the overall cancer death rate by 2035, attaining 85% of the challenge goal.

OP-JNCI190107 1241..1242

This annual report provides a high-level summary of national trends and patterns, permitting assessment of the impact of how advances in prevention, screening, early detection, and treatment are affecting cancer outcomes at the population level.



Cancer statistics, 2016

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.

Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, 1975–2014, Featuring Survival

Progress in reducing death rates and improving survival is limited for several cancer types, underscoring the need for intensified efforts to discover new strategies for prevention, early detection, and treatment and to apply proven preventive measures broadly and equitably.

An assessment of progress in cancer control

This article summarizes cancer mortality trends and disparities based on data from the National Center for Health Statistics and sets the stage for a national cancer control plan, or blueprint, for the American Cancer Society goals for reducing cancer mortality by the year 2035.

Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, 1975-2011, Featuring Incidence of Breast Cancer Subtypes by Race/Ethnicity, Poverty, and State

Breast cancer subtype analysis confirms the capacity of cancer registries to adjust national collection standards to produce clinically relevant data based on evolving medical knowledge.

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.

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.

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.

Geographic Patterns of Prostate Cancer Mortality and Variations in Access to Medical Care in the United States

E ecological data suggest that 10% to 30% of the geographic variation in mortality rates may relate to variations in access to medical care.

Cancer statistics for Hispanics/Latinos, 2015

Liver cancer incidence rates in Hispanic men, which are twice those in NHW men, doubled from 1992 to 2012; however, rates in men aged younger than 50 years declined by 43% since 2003, perhaps a bellwether of future trends for this highly fatal cancer.

Cancer mortality in the United States by education level and race.

BACKGROUND Although both race and socioeconomic status are well known to influence mortality patterns in the United States, few studies have examined the simultaneous influence of these factors on
