On behalf of NAACCR and our co-authors from ACS, CDC, and NCI, we are pleased to announce the release of the latest Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer. The Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer represents a collaborative effort from senior researchers at ACS, CDC, NAACCR, and NCI to produce current and comprehensive trends in cancer incidence and mortality. Our 21st Report was spearheaded by NAACCR and is current available as an on-line pre-publication copy
The purpose of this report is to produce the most up-to-date and comprehensive trends in cancer incidence and mortality. Each year we also focus on a special topic. This year our topic is cancer among young adults aged 20-49 and describes the patterns seen in this age-group. A main difference in cancer in this age-group is that the burden is much higher for women than men. This is driven by cancers traditionally higher among women (breast, melanoma, and thyroid), female-specific cancers (uterine, cervical, and ovarian), and higher rates of lung and non-malignant brain and CNS tumors among younger women than men. Additionally, incidence rates of in situ breast cancer among women and non-malignant brain tumors among women and men are quite substantial, 20.2, 17.6, and 9.5 per 100,ooo respectively.
