Cancer Survival Rates Increasing

The current report in Cancer reports that death rates from cancer continue to decline in the United States.  Researchers from the National Cancer Institute found an annual 0.4% per person decrease in cancer incidence rates between 2001 and 2010.  Rates were stable among women, but declined by 0.8% per year among children and 0.6% per year among men.

Details of the decrease rates, by population group and type of cancer, can be found in Cancer, 2013,doi:10:1002/cncr.28509
