Cancer Death Rates Continue To Decrease

Cancer Death Rates Continue To Decrease

From The American Cancer Society:

The death rate from cancer in the United States is still falling among men, women, and children, according to the latest Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, 1999–2015.

Overall rates of new cancers decreased in men from 1999 to 2015 and were stable in women during this time.

The American Cancer Society, the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Cancer Institute work together to create the report, which has been published each year since 1998. It provides an update of new cancer rates, death rates, and trends in the United States.

This year’s special section focuses on adults ages 20 to 49. The report was published May 30, 2019 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
