Patients with Chronic Disease

Goals

To find out the number of people in the United States who had, or currently live with Cancer, Heart Failure, Diabetes T1/2, COPD, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and Lupus.

Early Findings

Cancer

  • "In 2019, there will be an estimated 1,762,450 new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,880 cancer deaths in the United States."
  • More than 15.5 million Americans with a history of cancer were alive on January 1, 2016, most of whom were diagnosed many years ago and have no current evidence of cancer.
  • More than 1.7 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2019.
  • About 606,880 Americans are expected to die of cancer in 2019, which means that there are approximately 1,660 deaths per day.
  • "The most common cancers (listed in descending order according to estimated new cases in 2018) are breast cancer, lung and bronchus cancer, prostate cancer, colon and rectum cancer, melanoma of the skin, bladder cancer, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, kidney and renal pelvis cancer, endometrial cancer, leukemia, pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer, and liver cancer."
  • Here are the cancer deaths by state for 2019.

Heart Failure

Parkinson's Disease

  • "The incidence of the disease, or the rate of newly diagnosed cases, generally increases with age, although it can stabilize in people who are older than 80. An estimated 4 percent of people with Parkinson’s are diagnosed before age 50."

Lupus
