The death rate from cancer in the United States is continuing to decline among men, women, and children, according to the latest Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer. It shows the rate of death from cancer in the United States is decreasing for all major racial and ethnic groups, and for the most common types of cancer, including lung, colon, breast, and prostate. However, the report identified some cancer types with increasing death rates, including liver, pancreas, and brain cancer in men, and liver and endometrial cancer in women. The American Cancer Society, the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Cancer Institute work together to create the report, which has been published each year since 1998. It provides an update of new cancer cases, death rates, and trends in the United States. It includes a special section, which this year focuses on survival.
