Cancer deaths continue to decline as smoking rates drop

Cancer deaths continue to decline as smoking rates drop

The decline was broken down to 1.6 million fewer deaths of men and 739,000 million fewer deaths of women.

In 2018, 1,735,350 new cancer cases and 609,640 cancer deaths are projected to occur in the USA, the report found. That amounts to 4,700 new diagnoses each day. The decline began in 1991 and researchers say since then the death rate has dropped 26 percent. As tobacco use is the major cause of death almost 3 in 10 for the people diagnosed with cancer.

For the report, researchers analyzed mortality data collected by the National Center for Health Statistics and incidence rates from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program, the National Program of Cancer Registries and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries.

"The overall decline is driven by decreasing death rates for the four major cancer sites", the group said.

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

In women, 14 percent of deaths are from breast cancer, 7 percent from pancreatic cancer, and 5 percent from cancer of the ovaries. A fall of 52 percent is noticed in relation to prostate cancer from 1993 to 2015. Prostate cancer alone accounts for one in five diagnoses.

Cancer also continues to affect men and women differently.

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. On the other hand, lack of insurance among younger black Americans may contribute to their higher mortality rate compared to whites.

Women have a 37.6 percent percent chance of ever being diagnosed with cancer. 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. Cancer death rates were not statistically different by race in Kentucky and West Virginia, for example, but were the highest of all states for whites. Ahmedin Jemal, the gathering's VP for reconnaissance and wellbeing administrations inquire about, said the declines to a great extent reflect lessened smoking and advances in counteractive action, early identification and treatment.
