American Cancer Society Release Projected Cancer Cases, Deaths for 2018

Cancer death rates decreasing

The cancer statistics 2018 shows a decline in mortality rate due to the infection in lung, breast, prostate and colorectal cancer.

The reduction was fueled largely by fewer deaths from lung, breast, prostrate, and colorectal cancer, reported Rebecca Siegel, MPH, of the American Cancer Society and colleagues in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians.

For women, breast cancer remains the most commonly diagnosed form, accounting for 30 percent of all new cancer cases. From 2014 to 2015, of the 10 leading causes of death, only cancer declined.

Cancer is still a serious cause for concern: The researchers project that there will be more than 1.7 million new cases of cancer diagnosed in 2018 and 609,640 deaths from the disease.

The disease may once have been a death sentence, but fatalities declined by almost 40 percent since 1989.

More than one-third of all men and women in the U.S. will develop cancer during their lifetimes, but not every cancer diagnosis is an immediate death sentence.

According to the scientists, the rate of cancer diagnosis was stable in women from 2005 to 2014 while it dropped about 2 percent each year in men. The report also includes the effect of cancer on Hispanic and Asian Americans.

According to the report, men a slightly more likely to develop a form - most commonly, prostate, lung and colorectal - of cancer than women.

In both sexes, 8 percent of deaths are from colon and rectal cancer.

Lung cancer incidence rates continued to decline about twice as fast in men as in women, reflecting differences in tobacco use and more smoking among females in some populations.

Cancer death rates were 14% higher among non-Hispanic blacks than non-Hispanic whites in 2015, down from a peak difference of 33% in 1993.

Among Americans more youthful than 65, the death rate was just about a third higher among blacks than whites - with considerably bigger variations in many states.

"While the racial gap in cancer mortality continues to narrow, this progress primarily reflects older age groups, masking stark persistent inequalities for young and middle-aged black Americans", researchers write in the report.

Some states in the report, such as NY and MA, have seen the racial mortality gap disappear for whites and blacks over 65.
