How are we Doing in the Cancer Fight?

separator There’s mixed news in our progress in the fight against cancer:

Death rates had been slowing, but since 2000 the rates have leveled off.

Death rates for the four most common cancers—lung, prostate, breast and colorectal—have continued to decline for all groups except for women, who have experienced an increase in lung cancer deaths.

African Americans experience higher cancer death rates than Caucasians, especially for breast and colorectal cancer.
