Cancer Facts and Figures 2016 cover

This annual report provides the estimated numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in 2016, as well as current cancer incidence, mortality, and survival statistics and information on cancer symptoms, risk factors, early detection, and treatment. In 2016, there will be an estimated 1,685,210 new cancer cases diagnosed and 595,690 cancer deaths in the US. (Please note: The projected numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in 2016 should not be compared with previous years to track cancer trends because they are model-based and vary from year to year for reasons other than changes in cancer occurrence. Age-standardized incidence and death rates should be used to measure cancer trends.)
