American Cancer Society Release Projected Cancer Cases, Deaths for 2018

The cancer death rate dropped 1.7% from 2014 to 2015, continuing a drop that began in 1991 and has reached 26%, resulting in almost 2.4 million fewer cancer deaths during that time.

Overall, the U.S. cancer death rate reached a peak of 215.1 per 100,000 population in 1991, and has declined to 158.6 per 100,000 in 2015. The decline was broken down to 1.6 million fewer deaths of men and 739,000 million fewer deaths of women.

Because incidence and mortality statistics have a lag of 2 to 4 years, the researchers modeled data to project the contemporary cancer burden, estimating 1,735,350 new cancer cases and 609,640 cancer deaths in the United States in 2018. They are based on models that include trends through the most recent data year and can not anticipate abrupt fluctuations for changes in detection practices, like PSA testing and prostate cancer.

"A decline in consumption of cigarettes is credited with being the most important factor in the drop in cancer death rates", said Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society. Be that as it may, it's the main executioner in many states and among Hispanic and Asian Americans, the report noted. After cancer, heart disease is the second major cause of death in individuals.

The overall drop in deaths is due mainly to better survival among lung, breast, prostate and colorectal cancer patients.

According to the report, men a slightly more likely to develop a form - most commonly, prostate, lung and colorectal - of cancer than women. Currently, fewer cases of prostate cancer are being detected. Rates of lung cancer in women are now approaching the levels in men.

The good news, Goler Blount said, is more than 90 percent of black women are now insured following the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

The cancer death rate in 2015 was 14 percent higher in blacks than in whites, down from a peak of 33 percent 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. Cancer mortality was lower for blacks than whites in MA among all ages and in NY among those 65 and older, but higher in the District of Columbia, Wisconsin, Kansas, Louisiana, Illinois, and California.
