Looking for Cancer Statistics?

The American Cancer Society (ACS) has published its annual report estimating new cancer cases and deaths for 2017.  The Cancer Facts & Figures 2017 report includes estimates by cancer site, sex, and state.  Another report entitled Cancer Treatment & Survivorship Facts & Figures (2016-2017) by the ACS and the National Cancer Institute provides statistics on cancer survivorship for some of the most common cancers.  This data can also be found in the January/February 2017 issue of the journal CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians which is freely available to the public.
