Cancer death rates have fallen 27 percent

A study from the American Cancer Society found there were approximately 2.6 million fewer cancer deaths in the U.S. since reaching a peak of 215 deaths per 100,000 people Colorectal cancer endangers more 20-to-30-year-olds: study - Xinhua | English.news.cn

The U.S. cancer death rate has hit a milestone: It's been falling for at least 25 years, according to a new report.

"The racial gap in cancer mortality is continuing to narrow - so it was that the cancer death rate in blacks was 33% higher than in whites in the mid-1990s, and the current data now indicate it's 14% higher - so it's still higher, but the gap is narrowing, which is really good news", Siegel said. Similarly, the death rates for breast cancer dropped by 40% from 1989 to 2016, prostate cancer dropped by 51% from 1993 to 2016, and colorectal cancer dropped by 53% from 1970 to 2016.

The report also points to the role of socioeconomic inequality in cancer outcomes, in particular, for preventable cancers. According to the article, New York City will spend up to $100 million per year for the plan, which involves expanding the city's existing public insurance programs and providing uninsured residents with access to affordable care at city-owned facilities.

Meanwhile, on a global scale, the number of people around the world who have cancer appears to be growing, according to the World Health Organization.

In the early 1970s, colon cancer death rates in the poorest counties were 20 percent lower than those in affluent counties; now they're 35 percent higher. Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally.

Deaths from some cancers, however, rose. However, in adults younger than age 55, new cases of colorectal cancer have increased nearly 2% per year since the mid-1990s.

The report also noted that the rate of liver cancer diagnoses is increasing faster than any other cancer. Several factors affect the differences among racial and ethnic groups, including socioeconomic status (SES).

Cancer is the second most common cause of death among children ages 1 to 14 years in the United States, after accidents. In children, leukemia accounts for the majority of cancer cases, making up 28% of all childhood cancers.

Cancer risk increases with age, and the rapidly growing older population will increase demand for cancer care. The report, published this week in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, draws on mortality data from the National Center for Health Statistics and population-based cancer incidence data from the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program.

The lifetime probability of being diagnosed with cancer is 39.3% for men and 37.7% for women, which is a little more than 1 in 3.

The study from the American Cancer Society found there were approximately 2.6 million fewer cancer deaths in the US since reaching a peak of 215 deaths per 100,000 people. Other risk factors for liver cancer include obesity, heavy drinking, and smoking. Note: material may have been edited for length and content.
