First Major Study to Examine Cancer Incidence Among Asian Americans

Liver cancer continued to increase in Filipino, Kampuchean, and Vietnamese men, in recent years surpassing lung cancer among Kampucheans.

And while breast cancer was the most common form of cancer among women, not all groups experienced the same incidence or trends over this time period. Chinese women, for instance, experienced a greater than one percent increase annually in breast c
