Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer Released

The 2013 Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer was released to great fanfare.

Produced annually by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries, the report updates cancer incidence, mortality, and trends in the United States. It also highlights an overall decrease in cancer death rates, a decrease in death rates from several cancers—including lung, breast, prostate, and colorectal—and statistics on lung cancer death rates noting faster pace decreases than in previous years.
