U.S. Cancer Death Rates Have Dropped 20 Percent Since 1991
Date:1/17/2013

report containing similar statistics was released Jan. 7, on behalf of the cancer society, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. National Cancer Institute and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries.

That analysis found that the rate of cancer deaths among men dropped by 1.8 percent per year between 2001 and 2009, and by 1.5 percent per year for women.

"Our efforts in cancer prevention and control are working," Jane Henley, an epidemiologist in the division of cancer prevention and control at the CDC, told HealthDay at the time.

Despite recent progress, however, the fight against cancer continues. The American Cancer Society projected that nearly 1.7 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2013. The group also estimated that nearly 600,000 people would die from the disease this year.

For men, prostate, lung and colorectal cancers will account for half of all new diagnoses.

Breast, lung and colon cancer will account for about half of all new cancer diagnoses among women in 2013. Breast cancer will be the most prevalent, accounting for 29 percent of all new cases.

Although most forms of cancer are on the decline, the American Cancer Society report showed that incidence rates are actually increasing for melanoma (a serious form of skin cancer), as well as cancers of the liver, thyroid and pancreas. Uterine cancer death rates also are increasing among women.

For men, lung, prostate, and colorectal cancer will remain the most deadly forms of the disease. For women, lung, breast and colorectal cancers will be the most common cause of cancer death. Among the most deadly, lung cancer is expected to account for 26 percent of all female and 28 percent of all male cancer deaths.

Henley noted the prevalence of cancer and cancer-related deaths could be further reduced if more people would quit smoking, lose weight, eat healthy, exercise and drink few
