Extract

Despite a recent reduction in invasive cancer rates, the United States as a whole still falls short of several Healthy People 2020 objectives to decrease cancer incidence.

A recent federal data analysis showed that in 2010, nearly 1.5 million invasive cancer cases were reported to US cancer registries. The data cover 97% of the country’s population, excluding reports only from Arkansas and Minnesota.

The annual incidence of invasive cancer decreased to 446 cases per 100 000 population in 2010 from 459 cases per 100 000 in 2009. Invasive cancer was more common among men than women and rates increased with age, from 17.5 per 100 000 among children and teens younger than 19 years to 2209.9 among adults aged 75 years and older (Henley SJ et al. MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 2014;63[12]:253-259).
