In this article, the American Cancer Society provides estimates of the number of new cancer cases and deaths for children and adolescents in the United States and summarizes the most recent and comprehensive data on cancer incidence, mortality, and survival from the National Cancer Institute, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (which are reported in detail for the first time here and include high‐quality data from 45… 
Epidemiology of Childhood Cancer
Cancer Incidence Rates and Trends Among Children and Adolescents in the United States, 2001–2009
This study confirms that thyroid cancer rates are increasing and further describes rising cancer rates among African Americans and those in the Northeast, South, and West regions of the United States.
Disparities in pediatric and adolescent cancer survival: A need for sustained commitment
A US descriptive epidemiological analysis that sheds further light on the issue of racial and/or ethnic and SES-associated cancer survival disparities using data from the US National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) and the National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR).
Rates and Trends of Pediatric Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia — United States, 2001–2014
Both overall and among Hispanics, pediatric ALL incidence increased during 2001-2008 and remained stable during 2008-2014, and ALL incidence was higher in the West than in any other U.S. Census region.
Epidemiology of childhood and adolescent cancer in Bangladesh, 2001–2014
Cancer incidences in Bangladesh were lower than expected most likely due to a low level of awareness about cancer among clinicians and the population, inadequate access to health care, lack of diagnostic equipment and incomplete recording of cases.
Cancer treatment and survivorship statistics, 2014
The number of cancer survivors continues to increase due to the aging and growth of the population and improvements in early detection and treatment, and current treatment patterns for the most common cancer types are described based on information in the National Cancer Data Base and the SEER and SEER‐Medicare linked databases.
Trends in Cancer Mortality Among Adolescents and Young Adults in Brazil.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the trends in cancer mortality of AYA aged 15–29 years in Brazil and found that survival among this group has not improved as much as in younger children with cancer.

Geographic Variation in Pediatric Cancer Incidence — United States, 2003–2014
CDC analyzed data from United States Cancer Statistics during 2003-2014 and identified 171,432 cases of pediatric cancer during this period, and the cancer types with the highest incidence rates were leukemias, brain tumors, and lymphomas.
Demographic differences and annual trends in childhood and adolescent cancer incidence and mortality in Michigan during the period 1999-2012
M Males, non-Hispanic Whites, and Hispanic Whites tended to be disproportionately affected by cancer in Michigan and future research should investigate the relationship of genetic determinants, socio-economic factors, prenatal behaviors, and air pollution with cancer rates among racial/ethnic groups in Michigan.


Cancer statistics, 2014
The magnitude of the decline in cancer death rates from 1991 to 2010 varies substantially by age, race, and sex, ranging from no decline among white women aged 80 years and older to a 55% decline among black men aged 40 years to 49 years.
Outcomes for children and adolescents with cancer: challenges for the twenty-first century.
Almost 38,000 childhood malignant cancer deaths were averted in the United States from 1975 through 2006 as a result of more effective treatments identified and applied during this period.
Poverty and childhood cancer incidence in the United States
The results showed that medium- and high-poverty counties had lower age-adjusted incidence rates than low-p poverty counties for total childhood cancers combined, central nervous system neoplasms (ICCC group III), neuroblastoma (group IV), renal tumors (group VI), and other malignant epithelial neoplasm and malignant melanomas (group XI).
Long-term Cardiovascular Toxicity in Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults Who Receive Cancer Therapy: Pathophysiology, Course, Monitoring, Management, Prevention, and Research Directions A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association
The number of childhood cancer survivors is expected to increase as a result of the rising pediatric cancer incidence and improved long-term survival rates and the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study has improved the understanding of the long- term mortality and morbidity in this high-risk population.
Late recurrence in pediatric cancer: a report from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study.
Late recurrence is a risk for some pediatric cancers and by understanding diagnosis-specific risks, patients, families, and their medical providers can be better informed of the probability of cure.
Subsequent neoplasms in 5-year survivors of childhood cancer: the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study.
As childhood cancer survivors progress through adulthood, risk of subsequent neoplasms increases and patients surviving Hodgkin lymphoma are at greatest risk.
Fetal Growth and Childhood Cancer: A Population-Based Study
Increased risks for several childhood tumors were associated with measures of fetal growth, supporting the hypothesis that tumorigenesis manifesting in childhood is initiated in utero.
Second neoplasms in survivors of childhood cancer: findings from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study cohort.
PURPOSE To review the reports of subsequent neoplasms (SNs) in the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS) cohort that were made through January 1, 2006, and published before July 31, 2008, and to
